This dynamic one-day hybrid symposium offers a unique opportunity for clinicians to delve into cutting-edge practices, technologies, and evidence-based techniques. Attendees can participate either in-person or virtually, ensuring accessibility for all interested healthcare professionals.

The 2024 program will cover three key areas:
