Paediatric Neuro-Oncology services were established six years ago at the Aga Khan University. Since then this sub-specialty has grown tremendously; from the development of multi-disciplinary tumor boards to a training fellowship in paediatric neuro-oncology. This symposium will provide a review of advances in research and clinical management of paediatric brain tumors.
The symposium aims to:
- Establish paediatric neuro-oncology as an essential sub-speciality of paediatric oncology in lower and middle income countries (LMIC)
- Improve outcomes of paediatric brain tumors in LMIC by creating collaborations and twinning opportunities
- Provide updates from various disciplines involved in the care of paediatric brain tumors
Who should attend
All physicians and allied healthcare staff taking care of children with brain tumors
Participants will recieve a Certificate of Participation.
