3rd Joint Conference of BHIVA/BASHH, 1-4 April 2014, Liverpool
The Third Joint BHIVA/BASHH conference was held from 1-4 April 2014 in Liverpool.
This was a lively meeting attended by over 1000 delegates and with the overlapping interests of each society benefitting the overall programme. Although the four-day meeting only included 45 oral abstract presentations, there were close to an additional 450 posters.
The abstract book from the meeting is available online as a PDF file and BHIVA continues to webcast some of the oral sessions online with PowerPoint slides from all other oral presentations.
