Description

Postponed

Due to the global news coverage concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in light of the statement released by the four surgical Royal Colleges of the UK and Ireland this morning, we have taken the decision to postpone our Advanced laryngopharyngeal cancer: Functional preservation and rehabilitation course until a later date, which will be confirmed soon.

We do this in accordance with the surgical Royal Colleges’ advice to cancel all non-essential travel for surgeons and trainees until the end of summer, after which this may be revised. Our aim is to maximise availability to help health services throughout this critical period, and minimise any risk of actively transmitting the virus to other groups of medical professionals.

The event will be rescheduled for May or June 2021. Confirmation of the exact date will be communicated in the next weeks. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your understanding as this is an unprecedented situation for all.


A two-day international conference organised by Portsmouth NHS Trust. Bringing a unique international and multidisciplinary collection of world experts to the UK, to share their views on laryngeal preservation and laryngectomy rehabilitation.

Laryngopharygeal cancers strike patients at the centre of their identity and well-being: The speech-breathing-swallowing apparatus. Even worse, the majority of these cancers are detected late, when functional loss is already present or difficult to avoid. In recent decades, treatment of patients with laryngopharyngeal cancers has progressed in the optimisation of the balance between oncological control and functional outcome. The present course brings an international and multidisciplinary collection of world experts to the UK, to share their views on the most pertinent topics that affect this balance: Patient perspectives, prevention and early detection, preoperative patient optimisation, practical tips for conventional and future surgical approaches and reconstruction, the standard of care and future of laryngeal preservation treatment, total laryngectomy, functional rehabilitation after treatment and troubleshooting.
