The Advancing Dysphagia Practice team have announced their first international conference event, to be held in September at UCLan Cyprus.

The team have secured a panel of prestigious international speakers who will address topical professional issues, including values-based decision making in complex cases, ethical decision making and risk management, outcome measurement differences between research and practice, plus updates on the latest research news for specified clinical populations.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers include Professor Paula Leslie, University of Pittsburgh (left); Dr Kate Reid, University Hospital Birmingham; Dr Emilia Michou, University of Manchester and Dr Hazel Roddam, University of Central Lancashire.

The programme will incorporate chaired Question & Answer sessions with the presenters so that all audience members can participate fully, ask and hear all questions and discussions.
