Major advances in the prevention, diagnosis and both curative and palliative management of colorectal cancer have occurred in the past 40 years. Australian clinicians have been at the forefront through involvement in basic, translational and clinical trials research, through the Clinical Oncological Society of Australia and the various cooperative trials groups, including the Australasian Gastrointestinal Trials Group and the Trans Tasman Radiation Oncology Group.
