The programme consistently provides a valuable and top-quality update on Paediatric Haematology and Oncology; 2012 will be no exception. We are delighted to have secured 20 international experts to share their work and experience with us. The ample discussion time within the programme is always popular and enables the audience to pose their questions to the experts.

As well as the invited presentations, we are again calling for submissions for poster presentation via our Call for Abstracts. We urge all colleagues to consider profiling their material at this Conference; the posters get good exposure because of their prominent location in our break-time areas.

The feedback we get from this Conference is always positive. Delegates enjoy the size of the meeting, its cosy feel and interactive programme. We aim to provide two packed days of education, along with the opportunity to network and socialise, and this formula has proved to be highly successful over the years.

We have opened Registration in plenty of time in 2011 in order to give our Conference Series the best possible chance of continued success in these challenging times. If you book early, you will save money and since our Update Meeting only takes place every two years, it is important that you book your study leave in plenty of time so that you don’t miss the 2012 Update Meeting.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh in Spring 2012.
CPD accreditation has been applied for via the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. A total of 12 credits is usually available via this Meeting.
Additionally, European accreditation has been applied for via the Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe.
The total credits from both applications will be confirmed on the Conference Certificates of Attendance.
