New icons direct delegates to relevant sessions


For the first time, several conference sessions at DPC2018 have been flagged on the online agenda with special icons, to make it easier for delegates to identify the presentations of greatest interest to them.

To help visitors find these sessions at the event, the icons will also be included on the DPC2018 App and the Official Show Guide, and displayed at the theatre entrances before the relevant sessions start.

Sessions on the following topics will be flagged with icons:

Consultation Skills
Mental Health & Wellbeing
Injection Technique

Presentations identified by icons will include:

  • Renal
