27 May 2014 - 30 May 2014 - Brussels, Belgium



Bookmark and Share


The EAPCCT XXXIV International Congress will be held in Brussels, vibrant capital of Belgium, and the seat of the European Commission and most of the major political institutions of the EU.

As in previous years, the Congress is organised both academically and administratively by the EAPCCT Board and Scientific and Meetings Committee. This will ensure that delegates gain maximum benefit from the Congress. The Congress will once again be co-sponsored by the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology, which will also accredit the Congress for continuing medical education. The Pre-Congress will focus on “Natural Toxins”, and will include several case presentations and two Pro/Con-debates using the popular interactive voting system.

The principal themes of the academic programme of the Congress are: Where have we come from and where are we going?; Main challenges for the future; Poisonings in the developing world/resource-limited areas; New insights in mechanisms of toxicity and its clinical relevance; Chemical warfare agents; Revisiting the challenges posed by new recreational drugs.

The Pro/Con-debates on controversial toxicological subjects which proved so popular in London and Copenhagen will again take place during the main Congress, as well as the Pre-Congress. There will be a poster discussion session featuring a selection of interesting and controversial topics, but also short poster presentations imbedded in the main programme. As in previous year there will be a Round Table discussion focussing on the role of poisons centres in the eyes of the European partners.
