The Gastrointestinal Group is open to gastroenterologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical specialists, nurses, stoma care providers, researchers and other health care professionals with an interest in the management of both colorectal and upper gastrointestinal malignancies.

The aim of the Group is to promote education of health care professionals and the public on gastrointestinal oncology.  The Group also advocates for improvements in public health policy, particularly with regard to screening for colorectal cancer, and participates in the development of best practice guidelines.

The group has close links with the Australasian Gastrointestinal Trials Group that conducts, organises and develops multi-centre gastrointestinal oncology clinical trials in Australia.

Chair: Dr Connie Diakos
