Registration Terms and Conditions

Attendance at the meeting is dependent upon your agreement to the Registration Terms and Conditions.

 

OFFICIAL LANGUAGE

The official language of the Conference is English and Portuguese. All conferences, workshops and clinical sessions will be held in English or Portuguese.

CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT

Any confidential material must be anonymised in such a comprehensive way that if a patient was reading about themselves in a paper or listening to a recording of the presentation or discussion, they would not be able to identify themselves. It should not be assumed that because, for example, the Conference is taking place in another country that a patient’s confidentiality is somehow of less fundamental importance. In purchasing a ticket for the Conference, you are agreeing to keep confidential any such material that you see or hear; further should you inadvertently identify, directly or indirectly, a patient’s name that you undertake not to break the obligation you have implicitly given in respect to that patient’s confidentiality. You will also be asked to reconfirm this in any clinical session. If you attend a session in which clinical material is being presented and discussed and you think you recognize the identity of the patient, you should protect the patient’s confidentiality by quietly leaving the remainder of that session. In such case you may join another group discussion. Special care must be taken to avoid conversations about clinical material in any public place. Emails and internet postings involving clinical material should be absolutely avoided.
