SIOPE-ENCCA Case Studies
SIOPE-ENCCA Case Studies are provided by SIOPE and supported by the ENCCA consortium as part of its education and training programme. Clinical cases focus on specific and new treatment protocols in the field of paediatric oncology are shared online every two months. Participants are briefed with the background and then have the chance to put their diagnosis to the test. The author of each study also provides discussion to clarify the case as well as any recommended links for further reading. SIOPE Case Studies of the Month are ACOE accredited - worth 1 CME credit each. Do you want to share an interesting case study with us? Interesting case studies can be sent to SIOPE: upon editorial review and approval, we will select one which will be published online.
