Round table discussions

We will reintroduce the roundtable discussions at the pre-conference meeting in Vilnius 2018.

Participants have the chance to meet their Nordic colleagues in a formal setting to discuss their daily clinical work and share their experiences. The groups will consist of 10-30 participants. Each group will have a moderator with expertise in the following topics:

  • Oncology training for new nurses
  • Palliative care
  • Pain management
  • Use of smart technology in pediatric oncology

Come join in and share with your "friends". We have so much in common and so much to learn from each other. The roundtable discussion is planned the day between the educational day and the main conference. All sessions will be in English.

You can sign in for the roundtable discussions at registration.
