Categories: Education.

There are 39 weeks and 2 days to go to the opening ceremony of the 4th Global Congress for Consensus in Pediatrics and Child Health (CIP), which will be held from 19 – 22 March, 2015 in Marrakech, Morocco, and will build on the well-earned reputation of previous CIP meetings for unraveling the mechanisms and reaching consensus and agreements on main health pathologies, difficulties and controversies. Congress attendees will gain unique and powerful insights into the latest research, developments and treatments.

Renowned for its broad disciplinary approach, CIP 2015 is aimed at specialists in the diverse areas of Paediatrics, Paediatric Surgery, Family Medicine, Research and Policy.

More and more issues in Paediatrics and Child Health merit proper attention. “Where others see challenges, we see possibilities,” say the organisers. The stimulating academic programme promises to be one of the most varied and detailed ever and combined with a collegial environment, promises to foster debate, discussion and collaboration.

The International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) is one of the many collaborative societies supporting this congress and urges those working in the field of children’s palliative care to consider submitting in as many abstracts on the topic as they can. Not only is Marrakech a wonderful destination and idyllic place to visit, we could do a great deal of good by raising our voices on issues related to children’s palliative care in this setting. Abstract deadline is 01 December 2014 and can be submitted here

Joan Marston, the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) CEO and respected international advocate for children’s palliative care internationally commented, “If we are serious about the development of children’s palliative care worldwide, we need to start talking a lot more to those outside of palliative care who also work with very sick and vulnerable children. This congress provides the perfect opportunity to do just that.”
