Many of the UK’s leading healthcare professionals will be gathering in Dublin next week on the 24th to 26th January at the annual BTOG (British Thoracic Oncology Group) 2018 conference.
Consultants, doctors, nursing specialists and other healthcare experts involved in helping patients with cancers of the chest and lungs (thoracic cavity) will come together as a professional community to share best practice. They will hear about the very latest medical research into thoracic cancers and their treatment and discuss improving care and outcomes for patients.
BTOG 2018 is the 16th annual event and an important date in the calendar for everyone involved in this specialist area. It is billed as the best thoracic oncology educational event to attend and regularly attracts over 800 delegates.
Featuring symposiums, lectures and exhibition stands on a variety of thoracic cancer topics, the event allows all attendees to brush up on their expert knowledge and learn more about the latest innovations and practices.
BTOG is a collaborative collection of medical professionals whose mission is to support and educate healthcare experts, create a professional community to exchange ideas, information and innovation and to foster the development of research.
The conference provides valuable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certification for clinicians and is accredited and recognised by relevant bodies, including: The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom and The Royal College of Surgeons of England, to name a few.
As well as healthcare experts, the conference is well-attended by the pharmaceutical industry, law firms and patients’ support groups, including asbestos-related diseases, mesothelioma and lung cancer charities.
Novum Law will be represented by three expert lawyers from its specialist asbestos-related disease team, namely, Andrew Stinchcombe, Lynn Yeates and Peter Hilditch.
Peter Hilditch says: “BTOG’s annual conference is an insightful event we always look forward to. As the leading educational oncology event in the UK and Ireland, it offers a fantastic opportunity to understand how healthcare professionals are managing the treatment of the cancers that many of our clients are dealing with on a daily basis.
“BTOG conducts important research into thoracic malignancies – including lung cancer and mesothelioma – and their achievement in creating a significant professional network to promote best practice and foster vital research is hugely commendable.”
