In 2016 we are truly making a day of hope and support.
We are amalgamating our efforts and resources from various Information Day Conferences to create a National Conference and educational journey rich with insights from the research brain tumour community and various experts.
There are no planned Information Days occurring in 2016 except for a French education program in Montreal that will occur concurrently with the National Conference.
2015 Events - registration is now closed for these events, where recorded presentations are available, they have been posted to the pages below.
Information Day events offer hope and support to patients, caregivers and survivors by providing the opportunity to connect with others on the brain tumour journey as well as with health care professionals in the top of the field of neuroscience and oncology.
Topics covered at the events can include brain tumour basics, surgery, non-malignant brain tumours, pediatric brain tumours and quality of life issues. There are opportunities to hear exciting speakers, connect with experts and find others on the brain tumour journey.
You can also learn from the comfort of your own home by checking out videos of presentations from past events here and see a sample of the videos below. Topics covered in the more than 50 videos include clinical trials, brain tumour basics, surgery, treatment and quality of life. There is also an entire section devoted to the unique needs related to pediatric brain tumours.
