Most Challenging Cases in Paediatric Oncology – You are invited to an Interactive Webinar Series of ERN PaedCan and Young SIOPE  

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the new upcoming interactive webinars series on the most challenging cases in paediatric oncology, an ERN-PaedCan and Young SIOPE initiative.

From February 2021, monthly 30-minutes webinars will be organized: 15-minute case presentations by junior professionals in paediatric oncology, followed by 15 minutes of discussion with the audience and an expert in the field.

Many great applications for webinars were received, and 11 cases were chosen for presentation.

The webinars are free of charge and open to anyone who is interested, so please feel free to share this announcement with your colleagues. The ERN PaedCan management team is working on the CME accreditation of the series.

Please register your participation using the links below. (Pleae note, that you may also join the webinar series without registering. We will post the event and access links on the ERN PaedCan and SIOPE websites too. In case you are signed up, you automatically receive a calendar invitation and you are notified in case there are any changes.)


We look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming interactive webinars!
