A user's guide to the National Papillon and ColoRectal Cancer Database 12 Jan 2017

The ColoRectal Database is a new national colorectal carcinoma registry which has been created at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. This registry was set up to research and track the effectiveness of Papillon treatment for all UK Papillon patients and gather data on patient outcomes. The registry has been expanded to allow participating centres to enter data on any colorectal cancer patient, whether treated with surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy or best supportive care. This enables comparison of outcomes across patient groups. The intention is to enter data on all Papillon patients treated in the UK outside clinical trials, in accordance with NICE guidance. International centres and non-Papillon centres are also welcome to use the database. The database is hosted by the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford. Analysis will be carried out on a regular basis by research groups from the participating centres. The database is currently being expanded to enable patients to complete questionnaires describing their own outcomes, PROMS (patient reported outcome measures).
