About APOC 13 - 2024
The Advanced Paediatric Oncology Course (APOC) is a 5-day course held in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Since its inception in 1997 by Dr Jon Pritchard (GOSH and Edinburgh), the Advanced Paediatric Oncology Course (APOC) has sought to integrate new and emerging knowledge into the advanced care of children and young people with cancer. After the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic we held the deferred APOC 12 in 2022. We are delighted to continue with the tradition of APOC which is held every 2 years in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In APOC 13 2024 we have an international faculty of leading paediatric oncologists and scientists who will focus on how the unique biology of childhood cancer is informing the development of new collaborative clinical trials, and novel approaches to treatment, especially precision medicine, immunotherapy and targeted therapies.
APOC is an intense tutorial-based program, reinforced by facilitated discussion and clinical case presentations. APOC13 will integrate the evolving approaches to precision medicine and immunotherapy into research informed clinical care.
An endorsement for APOC 13 (2024) is pending with the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) for CPD
