26-27 March
9th Annual Oxford Bone Infection Conference

Examination Schools, High Street, Oxford

The underlying principle of OBIC is multi-disciplinary working. We invite all grades of orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, plastic surgeons, infection specialists, nursing and therapy staff and researchers to attend.

Internationally renowned speakers will deliver state-of-the-art talks, including the prestigious Cierny-Mader lecture which is invited each year to honour ‘excellence and innovation in the multidisciplinary management of bone and joint infection’.

The programme will include lectures, workshops and interactive sessions including:

Do’s and don’ts.  An (evidence based) approach to….

Diagnosis of bone and joint infection / Surgical management of prosthetic joint infection    / Wound closure

Something understood: Biofilm / Local antibiotics / Biomaterials and bugs

  • How I treat long bone infection
  • Rehabilitation – managing expectations
  • Engaging the research agenda
  • Trials and big data

Making the most of what we know: Why bother with a BIU? / How are we GIRFTING? / Update on diagnostic criteria and standards

New horizons : Bacterial metabolism and nanobubbles / Update on bacteriophages / Direct from tissue diagnostics

Call for abstracts:
We need you to share your ideas, research and clinical findings with your peers either as a selected oral presentation or selected poster. These can be any projects related to the field of bone and joint infection whether lab based or clinical.

We are also asking for challenging cases to be submitted for interactive audience discussion during the conference. These should be submitted in abstract form with a view to providing slides later.

Please submit the best and most thought-provoking abstracts you can muster – the team at OBIC will be very pleased to receive them.

There will be prizes for the best poster and oral presentations.
