The optimum pathway for patient undergoing surgery for pancreatic cancer is being refined in order to improve patients’ outcomes. The advent of precision radiation therapy techniques for pancreatic cancer may afford a unique and effective addition to the available treatment options; and thereby provide an opportunity to improve outcomes for patients. This meeting is to shape and develop a coherent and systematic approach in order to implement and evaluate the utility of integrating precision radiation therapy techniques into the peri operative pathway for patients with pancreatic cancer in the UK. The objective of this meeting is to produce a UK wide consensus on the utility and integration of precision radiation therapy into current peri operative pathways for pancreatic cancer. This meeting is specifically aimed at UK surgeons, clinical and medical oncologists, clinical radiologists, histopathologists, Clinical Nurse specialists, Medical physicists, therapy and diagnostic radiographers, patient representatives, researchers, representatives from research funding bodies, NHS commissioners and anyone involved in the care of patients specifically with surgical resectable and borderline resectable pancreatic cancer.
