Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference

The annual Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference provides a unique platform for parents and guardians of children affected by neuroblastoma to learn about some of the most innovative and up-to-date research in to the disease, and to engage with the experts directly.

The Conference aims to:

  • Share information on some of the most innovative and up-to-date neuroblastoma research with families, and provide them with the opportunity to hear from and engage with world-leading experts directly.
  • Give families the opportunity to meet and spend time with others in similar situations, and the Solving Kids’ Cancer team.
  • Provide professionals with the opportunity to network, share ideas and develop collaborations; as well as interact directly with the families impacted by their work.

Our 7th annual Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference takes place from 2 – 4 November 2018, at De Vere Latimer Estate, Buckinghamshire.

Spread over two days, the Conference features presentations on a variety of topics intended to provide parents with vital information on some of the latest research and treatments, and equip them with some of the knowledge needed to help make informed decisions about their child’s treatment path. The venue provides an opportunity for parents to relax and interact with experts, other families, and the Solving Kids’ Cancer team; with food, refreshments, childcare and accommodation all provided for free. On Saturday night, parents and speakers are invited to attend a Gala Dinner which provides the opportunity for everyone to get together in an informal and friendly setting to meet, connect and share experiences.

Our aim is to develop a nexus of support for families, to help ensure that they have all the information and contacts they need throughout their journey.

Information for families

Solving Kids’ Cancer provides the conference weekend free to parents and guardians of a child affected by neuroblastoma, subject to venue and accommodation capacity.

We typically invite two adults per family to register for the conference weekend to give as many families as possible the opportunity to attend; but enable you to register the interest of other family members, whose attendance would be subject to availability nearer the time.

All children are invited to attend the conference weekend and professional childcare is provided throughout the conference programme.

We offer travel grants to families to ensure that travel expenses do not prohibit attendance, in line with our travel policy.

Should demand exceed availability, priority must be given to families who reside in the UK.

There’ll be more information on how you can register soon!

History of the Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference

The conference is entering its 7th year and has been constantly growing since its inception. It began as a one-day meeting and has since evolved in to a 2-day conference weekend to give families the time to gather as much information as possible and spend time with others going through a similar ordeal.
