As conference chair, I am delighted to invite you to the 4th Global Conference on Perioperative Medicine – Care of the Cancer Patient. The conference is being held right in the heart of London at the state of the art Royal College of General Practitioners (Euston Square) from Nov 23rd-25th 2016 and is organised by the five participating Departments of Anaesthesiology:
The Royal Marsden Hospital, London
The VUmc Cancer Center Amsterdam
The MD Anderson Cancer Center Houston
The Mater Hospital Dublin
The Peter Maccallum Cancer Center Melbourne.
Featuring international leaders in both the research and clinical fields of Anaesthesia, Pain and Cancer, the programme will highlight the growing body of evidence around the link between anaesthesia delivery and cancer outcomes and the consequent clinical implications. There are also sessions covering pain management in the cancer patient, the fundamentals of critical care medicine for oncology and haemato-oncology, bleeding and transfusion issues, haemodynamics and stress metabolism.
Workshops are available on day 1 of the conference for those wishing to learn how to conduct CPET and TIVA. Another focus is the Opioid workshop concentrating on the management of acute and chronic cancer induced pain.
This is the fourth such conference, following on from Houston (2013), Melbourne (2014) and Amsterdam (2015) and we look forward to developing and extending the success of these previous meetings
London is Europe’s largest city and its accessibility and culture makes it one of the continent’s most visited destinations. It offers all of the political, cultural and historic experiences that one could wish for at a scientific conference in a prime location. Its universities, research institutions, theatres, museums, concert halls, and architecture enjoy a first class international reputation. Occurring in the run up to Christmas, there is also access to first class shopping and Christmas Markets !
I look forward to meeting you in November 2016 in London and to expanding cooperation and existing ties in this exciting and developing field.
