Welcome to the Second International Robin Sequence (RS) Consensus Meeting website “Building our Consensus in Robin Sequence: How do we know we are treating our patients in the best way”. This meeting is jointly hosted by the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto and The Seattle Children’s Craniofacial Center to be held May 7th and 8th, 2017. The conference will be a 2 full day format held at the Peter Gilgan Center for Research and Learning, 686 Bay Street (corner of Elm and Bay Streets), adjacent to the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada.
This symposium is designed to continue the discussion generated at the remarkably successful First International Robin Sequence Conference held in Utrecht, the Netherlands in November 2014. The objectives for this meeting are
- To facilitate clinical care and research progress for children with RS
- To develop multidisciplinary and multisite collaboration needed to advance care for children with RS
- Present scientific advances in the care of children with RS
It is anticipated that this conference will draw interest from many disciplines involved in the management of children with Robin Sequence including Plastic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, Respirology, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Dieticians, Occupational Therapy, and Genetics. The focus of this event is to focus on the optimization of care for these complex patients and to develop international collaborations for data collection and research using the format of didactic lectures, panel discussions and small group breakout sessions.
On behalf of the University of Toronto’s Division of Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery and The Seattle Children’s Craniofacial Center, we look forward to personally welcoming you to Toronto this spring.
