Conundrum: case reports. The idea is to have the participants coming with their own cases & experiences - presenting them - having discussion over them. Participants will be asked (and encouraged), from the moment they register, if they have cases to present - difficult cases not resolved and so on. This will be the most interactive day - with the active participation of all speakers
