We extend a warm invitation to all our members to join us at the Headlines Conference and Information Day.

The conference aims to share knowledge and engage patients, carers and health professionals affected or involved in the care of children and young adults with craniosynostosis.

The conference has a varied programme including:

  • Information on Craniosynostosis and associated conditions
  • The multi-disciplinary approach to care
  • Current research and latest advances in craniofacial care
  • Group discussion sessions to talk about what good patient information should look like and review the Top Ten Priorities for research into Craniosynostosis

Presenters will include surgeons, craniofacial nurse specialists, clinical psychologists, speech and language therapists, and clinical geneticists. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask the speakers questions and hear from experts from different supra-regional craniofacial units. There will be breaks to meet with other patients and families to share experiences and offer support.
