    8th International Conference on Children's Bone Health 2017

    ICCBH meetings provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of current basic and clinical science in the field of bone metabolism and bone mass in children, adolescents and young adults.

    The International Conference on Children’s Bone Health (ICCBH) was started in 1999 by an international group of independent clinicians and researchers interested in bone metabolism and bone mass in children, adolescents, and young adults. Five conferences were organised successfully by members of the Organising Committee, the last being in Cambridge, UK, in 2009. In 2011 it was decided to approach an international association for administrative support and we have subsequently made an agreement with the European Calcified Tissue Society who will manage the conferences on the Organising Committee’s behalf.

    Previous meetings have been held as follows:

    27-30 June 2015, Salzburg, Austria
    22-25 June 2013, Rotterdam, Netherlands
    23-26 June 2009, Cambridge, UK
    21-24 June 2007, Montreal, Canada
    11-14 May 2005, Sorrento, Italy
    12-15 June 2002, Sheffield, UK
    4-7 May 1999, Maastricht, Netherlands

    Learning Objectives

    On completion of the conference programme, the participant will enhance their understanding of a contemporary approach to clinical and basic paediatric bone science as related to:

    Inherited and acquired bone disorders
    Effects of chronic illness on muscle and bone
    Bone therapeutics
    Bone diagnostics
    Bone signalling and metabolism
    Continuing Medical Education (CME)

    CME accreditation will be applied for through the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association (AMA).
