Clinical pre-conference session

We are also running a special 3hr session on SNOMED CT support for cancer care prior to the Expo, on Oct 27 (12:30-15:30 UTC)

According to the Global Cancer Observatory, cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. SNOMED CT as the leading global clinical terminology is ideally suited to support clinicians in the delivery of cancer care. Through the ontological basis of SNOMED CT, it is also well positioned to support cancer research activities internationally. The session will bring together presenters who are directly involved in using SNOMED CT in different scenarios, to showcase some examples of how SNOMED CT is beginning to make a real difference in cancer care and research.

Please note: Registration for this webinar is separate from the main Expo process.
