Published: 07 March 2024 Event News

The United Kingdom Imaging and Oncology (UKIO) 2024 conference has unveiled its full multidisciplinary programme.

The UKIO conference is a three-day event held in June that promises “cutting-edge, practice-based content for a multidisciplinary audience”, which allows professionals to meet for their continuing professional development and to receive delegate-focused education.

Taking place in Liverpool, at the ACC Liverpool venue from 10-12 June, 'UKIO 2024 – Vision and values: Putting people first' is organised by the ROC, (Radiology Oncology Congresses), a charitable partnership of the British Institute of Radiology, the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine and the College of Radiographers.  

Patient voice and workforce wellbeing

The full programme, released earlier this month, is focused on people, with opportunities to hear the patient voice, and content centred on workforce wellbeing. 

Sessions to be held over the course of the event, from Monday 10 June to Wednesday 12 June, include refresher-based sessions, hands-on and case-based workshops, an all-day research hub and a full programme of proffered papers, with a large e-poster display.

The full list of more than 100 curated sessions will give insights on innovation, technology, and service delivery from industry partners. Alongside these comes the return of the trainee masterclass programme, and a full day of student-targeted sessions on Wednesday, which will be free to attend.
