The Pelvic Radiation Disease Association (PRDA) has been working with leading UK experts in late effects of pelvic radiotherapy to produce a world-first document, which guides the management of almost all aspects of PRD and supports the development of better services and pathways. 

At the online conference, we will launch the Best Practice Pathway, which is aimed at any healthcare professional who may have a role in caring for someone with symptoms of PRD. It is also an opportunity for patients to better understand their current care options and how to advocate for better care for themselves.

We also want to use this moment to raise awareness of the devastating impact of PRD on people’s lives, the range of symptoms and problems caused by PRD, and the many effective ways to manage them. 

Following on from the success of last year’s Annual Conference, this year’s talks will focus on some less-common PRD symptoms, including lymphoedema, vascular and bone problems, and the psychological impact.  

All the presentations from the 2021 Annual Conference remain on our website, and are available to view for free. Topics include: pain management, psychosexual difficulties, managing urinary problems and managing gastrointestinal problems. 

Following the 2022 conference, we will again make the full event available to view online. 

Tickets to the event are non-chargeable, but we would encourage delegates to make a suggested donation of £20 to the Pelvic Radiation Disease Association to fund our future work in giving a voice to people living with Pelvic Radiation Disease and in sharing the Best Practice Pathway as widely as possible.
