Registration Open
Following successful conferences in Dartmouth in 2013, the University of Oxford in 2014 and the NIH in 2015, we are pleased to announce the 2016 international Preventing Overdiagnosis conference will be held in Barcelona. Registration is now open, with a special early bird price of £385 which is inclusive of drinks reception/social on Wednesday evening.

Call for Abstracts Open – Accepted in English & Spanish
You can now submit an abstract for an oral presentation, poster, workshop or seminar at the 2016 conference. Abstracts will be accepted for topics related to overdiagnosis and we encourage abstracts from researchers, clinicians, policy-makers, industry, or representatives from patient or citizen groups working in health care.

Several broad themes related to overdiagnosis have been developed by the scientific committee. While there is no restriction to these themes, abstracts are being encouraged in these areas:

• Widening disease definitions that cause overdiagnosis
• Genomics and the potential for overdiagnosis
• Economic consequences of overdiagnosis
• Ageing: overdiagnosis, dediagnosis and deprescribing
• Cultural and existential drivers of overdiagnosis
• Interventions to mitigate harms of overdiagnosis
• Big data
