This five day DAISI trip will be colorectal surgeon Prof Peter Hewett’s second trip to National Referral Hospital (NRH) building on skills already taught on his last colorectal surgical visit earlier in the year in April 2018. The aim of this trip was to teach advanced open colorectal surgery and basic laparoscopic skills.  A session on colonoscopy skills will also occur teaching techniques to facilitate reaching the caecum in the long tortuous colon, and endoscopic polypectomy techniques.  There will also be didactic teaching sessions to help the surgical registrars understand decision making related to surgical cases.
