The European Society of Radiology will be bringing the next ‘in Focus’ programme, Children in Focus, to ECR 2020. The programme will explore a range of healthcare and social issues affecting children and young people. The Children in Focus programme will be part of the the 'Paediatric & Children in Focus Highlight Week', taking place on October 20-21. Registration for this event is free for all attendees of ECR 2020. To register for this Highlight Week only, please click here.
The sessions will feature a wide variety of speakers from across the spectrum of healthcare industries, both patients and professionals, sharing inspirational stories from their own personal experiences, offering advice, and asking the tough questions about children and the care they receive around the world. Topics will include bringing healthcare to children in low-resource areas, using imaging in cases of child abuse, and discussing hotly debated issues such as consent, data use and medicolegal dilemmas in paediatric medicine.
Children in Focus, which is held in memoriam Dr. Helen M.L. Carty, is being coordinated by Dr. Lil-Sofie Ording Müller, Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, and Dr. Catherine Owens, Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London.
Children in Focus is organised by the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in proud partnership with the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR).
