Prof Vincenzo Valentini - Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy
Prof Vincenzo Valentini speaks to ecancer.tv about best practice in rectal surgery, explains how the combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy before surgery improves patient survival and talks about a simple algorithm that can be used to decide if a patient also needs post operative adjuvant chemotherapy.

Prof Valentini discusses how he hopes to use his time as president of ESTRO to increase the range of e-learning tools available for cancer clinicians. These will include online opportunities to simulate and practice skills and an e-course where small groups can receive support online from tutors.
