Welcome to the 23rd REaSoN meeting which will be held on 2nd – 4th July 2017 at the University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

As always, the aim of the REaSoN meeting is to bring together an excellent faculty from the UK and abroad, to deliver the hot topics in neonatology through lectures, discussion and networking opportunities. This year is no exception, and we are pleased to be able to welcome speakers from Australia and from Europe.

The programme for this year will focus on some of the key issues facing staff working in the Neonatal Unit today. As usual there will be a lively debate, which will be thought-provoking and conducive to discussion.

Once again, we are pleased to see the return of the nursing focussed sessions in the main programme. These sessions have been kindly developed by Roisin McKeon-Carter from Bristol, and we hope that it will interest our Nurse attendees.

Following the success of the Quality Improvement Session of last year, we have decided to include this once again, and we would like to extend our thanks to Dr Julie-Clare Becher who has kindly developed this session. We are delighted to be able to welcome Professor Martin Elliott who is an accredited speaker on Matthew Sayed’s ‘Learning from our mistakes’ – a new approach to high performance.

As usual, there is an opportunity for you to submit your Abstracts for the main Poster Session and Oral Presentations. Following the success of last year’s Quality Improvement submissions, there will once again be an opportunity for you to submit your Abstracts for inclusion as a Poster or as part of the Oral Presentation session. Further details will be included on the website within the next couple of weeks.

The meeting will appeal to Consultant Neonatologists, SpR’s, Junior Doctors, Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners, Neonatal Nurses, and Midwives. This meeting regularly attracts around 350 delegates, and has become one of the major events in the neonatal calendar. We would like to thank all of our sponsors, without whose continued support, the meeting could not succeed.

We trust that the 23rd REaSoN Meeting will provide a stimulating and informative forum for networking with colleagues, the exchange of ideas, an opportunity for healthcare professionals to update themselves on new research and practices from around the world.

We will be regularly adding further information regarding the programme as it is developed, so please remember to log on for future updates on topics and faculty.

With kind regards
