In order to provide Continuing Education in Clinical Toxicology (CECT), the EAPCCT Scientific and Meetings Committee has arranged a TOXUPDATE. This one-day symposium will include state-of-the-art presentations on:
  • Toxicity mediated by metabolic pathway: from pathophysiology to management – to include talks and interactive study sessions.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME - Wednesday 25 to Friday 27 May 2016

The themes for the Congress are shown below and abstracts on these topics would be particularly welcomed:
  • Household product safety
  • E-cigarettes – the good, the bad and the ugly
  • Clinical toxicology of cannabis and cannabinoids
  • Current challenges of opioids
  • Toxic aspects of ammunition
  • Advances in critical care of poisoned patients: imaging and treatment
  • Aerotoxic syndrome
  • Risk communication - Detection, assessment, management and communication of risk in mass human toxic exposures

Pro/Con debates, panel discussions and plenary lectures
Pro/Con debates and panel discussions will be included in the Madrid congress programme as well as up to three plenary lectures with invited speakers who are acknowledged experts in their fields.

Louis Roche lecture
The annual Louis Roche lecture, awarded to a toxicologist in recognition of their outstanding contributions to our science and activity, will be delivered by this year’s awardee Professor Robert (Bob) Hoffman, New York, USA.

Poster discussion session
Expanded sessions dedicated to discussion of poster presentations of special or controversial interest proved very popular and successful during the 2015 EAPCCT Congress in Malta and it is our intention to repeat and expand this by including a daily poster discussion session in the Madrid programme. We would like to encourage you to submit your outstanding work – the Scientific Committee will select abstracts for discussion and presentation by the authors to a wider Congress audience.
