The 2nd Annual Congress on Trauma-informed, Neuroprotective Care for Hospitalized Infants, Families and Clinicians
Feb 21 - 23, 2019 | USD $650 | Bruges, West Flanders
The 2nd Annual Congress on Trauma-informed, Neuroprotective Care for Hospitalized Infants, Families and Clinicians is organized by Caring Essentials Collaborative, LLC and will be held from Feb 21 - 23, 2019 at Hotel Dukes' Palace, Bruges, West Flanders, Belgium. The target audience for this medical event is leading scientists, researchers, clinicians and educators to translate advances in our understanding of early life adversity, epigenetics and parental mental health into actionable improvements in the care of critically ill infants and families. Course Objectives: • To bring together international experts to catalyze and advance evidence-based practice in trauma-informed, age-appropriate neuroprotective care of the infant and family in crisis across all healthcare settings. • To create a mastermind group that will explore, brainstorm and create clinically relevant, evidence-based practice improvement strategies that ensure high quality, safe, timely, patient and family centered care. • To raise the bar in the performance expectations of transdisciplinary neonatal and pediatric clinicians in meeting the disease-independent, age-appropriate needs of the hospitalized newborn, infant and family. • To foster scholarship that will engage and empower frontline clinicians to begin a cultural transformation in their clinical setting that reflects the principles and practices of trauma-informed, neuroprotective care for infants, families, and clinicians. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease is organized by VIB Conference Series and will be held from Feb 21 - 22, 2019 at Old St. John Site, Bruges, West Flanders, Belgium. Conference Description: Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells. Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well. This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer. Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
