The Pelvic Radiation Disease Association’s Vision is:
- That the long term effects of pelvic radiotherapy are prevented, predicted or minimised;
- That people affected by Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD) are diagnosed, fully supported and given the best possible care and treatment to alleviate their symptoms and improve their quality of life;
- That Pelvic Radiation Disease is widely accepted as a serious consequence of cancer treatment that requires focused research and education.
PRDA aims to have an impact by:
- Providing and facilitating direct support and information to people affected by, or at risk of, pelvic radiation disease (PRD);
- Providing a voice for people affected by PRD;
- Inﬂuencing decision-makers to achieve adequate, dedicated funding for PRD services across the UK;
- Working with charity, professional organisations, NHS and other partners to improve health and social services for people affected by PRD;
- Working with charity and professional organisation partners to improve professional awareness and education on the prevention and treatment of PRD;
- Influencing research and trials that address issues to do with PRD.
