The course consists of plenary sessions and interactive outbreak sessions. Plenary sessions will comprise clear structured and up-to-date presentations followed by audience discussion. Voting devices will be used to respond to multiple choice questions. These questions may precede the presentation of the structured knowledge or may be presented at the end in order to test the level of knowledge the audience has gained.

The main part of the course consists of 8 interactive sessions, each with no more than 25 attendants. Every participant takes part in each of these sessions which mainly comprise casebased discussion. These will be used to illustrate treatment pathways, how risk and benefit are assessed, and how management decisions are made.
