About MPN Horizons Conference 2018

The third international conference for MPN Patient Advocates will take place 31 August to 2 September, 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Steering Committee has worked hard to ensure that the conference includes topics of importance to the MPN patient community and provides a unique opportunity for participants to share experiences and best practices.

We hope that as a result of this meeting MPN patient groups globally will improve their capacity to meet the needs of their constituents and optimise their advocacy activities.

This year we will hold MPN Horizons together with CLL Horizons, just like we did two years ago in Belgrade. All medical sessions will be held separately and some of the advocacy session will be held together.

Meeting Schedule

MPN Horizons 2018 starts on Friday 31 August with an overview of MPN Horizons and our MPN101/102 Session.  It will end on Sunday 2 September with a farewell lunch at 13:00. An optional city tour will follow.  The programme features medical specialists and advocacy leaders from around the world.

An updated agenda will be added shortly!

Your opportunity to share! The Best Practices session will kick off this year’s advocacy sessions on Friday afternoon and will include very short presentations and concise, focused discussions on successful advocacy topics led by patient groups. The presentations should describe a key initiative that you have implemented, that other MPN patient organisations could learn from and perhaps implement as well. You should also share what went right, what didn’t quite work the way you thought it would and what you would do differently next time. The aim of the session is to provide participants with the opportunity to learn from advocacy initiatives and experience of other MPN organisations, not to learn about specific patient organisations as such.

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for this session until 31 July 2018 to mpnadvocatesnetwork@gmail.com. The MPN Horizons Steering Committee will then review all abstracts and select those that will be presented during the session.
