Online booking has now closed, please contact the conference department if you wish to book onto this conference, by emailing meetings@rcpath.org.

The aim of the meeting is address a number of areas of post-mortem practice that have been highlighted at previous meetings as topics of concern/interest.  The day should appeal to both consultants and registrars who undertake post-mortem examinations with the aim to offer guidance on how to approach these types of cases and to provide a potentially rare opportunity to discuss interesting or challenging cases with other pathologists.

Delegates (both consultants and registrars alike) are invited to bring along their own cases for discussion during this session.  These may be complex cases for which you would like the opinion of others or good examples of post-mortem pathology that you would like to share.  If you are interested in presenting, please could you provide a short precis of the case so that a 15 minute slot can be allocated and duplication can be minimised.  If this proves to be more popular than time allows, slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  In order to facilitate compiling the programme could all interested delegates please express their interest to the conference department (email below) by 1st March 2016.
