Serving as a nexus for the wealth of knowledge provided by three leading paediatric societies, the 6th Congress of the European Academy of Paediatric Societies (EAPS 2016) promises to build on the reputation of previous highly successful meetings.
Paediatric professionals from around the world will gain unparalleled access to the best scientific research programmes. Firmly established yet dedicated to thinking outside the box, EAPS 2016 aims to engage the world’s best in a hearty exchange of experiences and expertise in research and clinical care.
Europe's foremost pediatrics subspecialty societies EAP, ESPNIC and ESPR have dedicated their time and formidable talents into organizing an stellar educational/research forum that will celebrate outstanding science in all areas of pediatrics.
We have confirmed over 30 speakers and panelists from a range of disciplines that include Otolaryngology, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology, Speech Pathology, Nutrition, Healthcare Administration and more. Thursday, November 3, will feature an afternoon business session, including how to start and run an Aerodigestive Program, cost estimation in aerodigestive care, and measuring patient-centered outcomes. Friday and Saturday (November 4 and 5) are filled with lectures, panels and breakout sessions spanning all aspects of aerodigestive disease management from intrapartum treatments to transitions to adulthood.
New to the program this year is the invitation to submit research for group presentation. After independent review, high-scoring projects will receive podium presentation, while others will be featured in a poster session. Preliminary research, case series, and interesting case reports are all eligible. The goal is open sharing of new concepts and observations affecting the care of children with aerodigestive diseases. Research presented at this meeting is not bound to the meeting or to any subspecialty journal. Conference attendees, panelists and lecturers alike are welcome to submit research for presentation, and we welcome resident and fellow presenters as well.
