An international scientific committee is underway in developing the 2020 conference programme where 120 plus thought leaders considered pioneers in the clinical laboratory will deliberate on technical skillsets, research findings and recommendations on multi-disciplinary topics from laboratory management to microbiology, clinical chemistry, haematology and more. The agenda will continue to offer CME accreditation and host the most diverse speaker line-up of international laboratory medicine specialists.
The CME accredited multi-disciplinary conferences will bring together a diverse line-up of high calibre international laboratory medicine specialists. For instance, the Heads of Laboratory Masterclass will offer attendees the opportunity to connect and network with colleagues from the industry and discuss key challenges.
Some of the newly introduced conferences include the Blood Transfusion Medicine Conference, which will be supported by The International Society of Blood Transfusion and the Saudi Society of Transfusion Medicine. This expert-led agenda will feature a host of renowned international blood specialists who will share novel insights that will transform attendee’s breadth of expertise, update their diagnostic skills and support the provision of excellent care to every patient.
Technological innovation in healthcare is growing at an increasingly fast pace across specialties, and the laboratory is no exception. It offers great potential to improve working efficiency, patient care and experience, however, adaptation and implementation of innovations come with challenges. This newly launched conference on Laboratory Innovation will aim to ultimately support the better provision of solutions for existing healthcare problems.
One of the other new features is the Roundtable Discussions – focused scientific group discussions on selected administration and technical topics in the medical laboratory, these will allow participants to gain in-depth knowledge, directly from a facilitator and share amongst other professionals the challenges and best practices in providing efficient diagnostic services.
The event will also host free-to-attend industry workshops offering visitors a chance to hear from manufacturing companies about innovations and recent product launches. Furthermore, the Education Zone will allow visitors to discover clinical researches and projects in laboratory medicine through poster display and oral presentations. Additionally, ‘Career Talks’ will provide a platform for young laboratory professionals to learn about opportunities for career planning and further education.
Tom Coleman, Group Exhibition Director, Informa Markets Healthcare, said: “The 2020 dates for Medlab Middle East are on calendars of clinical laboratory and trade pioneers across 135+ countries. It’s been a very successful few years in Dubai since we branched off as a stand-alone show from Arab Health, and the upcoming edition under the newly introduced theme ‘Transforming diagnostic innovations’ is gearing up to put on a top-notch experience for all stakeholders – see you there.”
