Evidence Review

What could we achieve?

Bowel cancer is near unique in the number of opportunities we have to stop people dying from it. With all these tools in our arsenal, some clinicians and charities worldwide have begun to ask: can we move towards a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer?

Using this evidence base, we asked: if we took every opportunity available to us in bowel cancer prevention, diagnosis, and care, what could we achieve?

Over 60 bowel cancer professionals have helped to shape the review, and the subsequent case for change
