Can the coatings be improved to help prevent infection?
Through a mixture of didactic lectures from a faculty of key experts from the UK and abroad, interactive debates and specialised break-out groups, we invite you to join us at the Royal College of Physicians in October and participate in exploring these and other issues, culminating in a conference agreement of aims.
