The London Advanced TB Course is taking place Nov 10-11th.
It is organised by Public Health England with the Centre for Respiratory Infection (CRI), National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London. “This intensive course will offer a comprehensive update to participants on the clinical management of TB cases and incidents, evaluate new diagnostic techniques available for TB and provide an understanding of TB epidemiology and TB services in the UK.”
Specific areas that will be covered include:
- Learning outcomes
- Diagnostics updates
- Management Updates
- Tackling complex cases
- Incident management
- Paediatrics and HIV aspects
Speakers include familiar names such as Prof Onn Min Kon and Prof Graham Bothamley. It will no doubt be a high quality course. For a full programme and booking details have a look at the NHLI short course site. Unfortunately it does cost money: £300 for the full 2 days.
There is also a FREE evening symposium on Nov 10th 6.00pm-7.30pm, hosted by the Health Protection Research Unit, at the Guy Scadding Building, near the Brompton Hospital, South Kensington. It will be hosted by Prof Onn Min Kon. Talks will include:

- A Netherlands experience of an MDR centre – Dr Wiel de Lange
There is even a cheese and wine reception from 5.30pm. Places are limited. More details are available on the flyer: London TB symposium 2016 flyer.
