Colorectal Cancer Case Study

2h CPD

The following case study focuses on a 44 year old female who had presented to the Emergency Department on several occasions with abdominal pain, PR bleeding, and anaemia. On her final presentation, she was admitted and relevant investigations revealed a diagnosis of advanced rectal cancer. As you work through this case study there will be information and discussions regarding colorectal cancer, risk factors, signs and symptoms, assessment strategies and bowel preparation. This information will help you as a nurse/carer to have a greater understanding of colorectal cancer and appropriately assess and initiate/prompt investigations for your patient who may be showing signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer.
