Pre-congress seminar: limited number of seats available, register now

In the days before the 7th World Research Congress of the EAPC the EAPC Research Network and the European Palliative Care Research Centre (PRC) will host a pre-congress seminar. The prevalent symptoms in cancer patients, pain, dyspnea and cachexia, will be in focus, covering the topics basic mechanisms, assessment and classification as well as guidelines and treatment. The aim is to have a fruitful and exciting event that facilitates sharing of cutting-edge knowledge. Among the experts who will be present are: David Currow (AU), Augusto Caraceni (IT), Peter Lawlor (CA), Andrew Somogyi (AU), Robin Fainsinger (CA), Vickie Baracos (CA) and Amy Abernethy (US).

The seminar will have plenary and parallel sessions for a maximum of 60 participants. Seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis. A pearl in the Norwegian countryside, Jægtvolden Fjordhotell at Inderøya, will provide a peaceful and creative frame for this exciting seminar.

To make it a truly dynamic meeting, all registered participants are invited to give short presentations in the parallel sessions covering important aspects of the symptoms and topics in focus. A total of 18 slots are available for this. For more information, registration and submission of presentations, please click here.
