Workshops

Workshops will take place between 0800-0845 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Details of the intended scope of each workshop are available below in order to help delegates to register for the most appropriate workshops.

Registered workshop attendees will receive background material beforehand, which may include data, clinical cases or questions as well as relevant references.

A 'clearing house' system will be in operation at the meeting to enable delegates to take-up unbooked workshop spaces at short notice.
