The second ONCA conference was held in Berlin on the 3rd-4th November 2015, and brought together multiple stakeholders to look at challenges, explore opportunities and agree on future priorities in order to drive improvement in delivery of optimal nutritional care for all.
The conference was hosted by the German delegation and chaired by Professor Olle Ljungqvist (ENHA Chair, ESPEN representative) and Professor Anne de Looy (President of the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians, ENHA trustee). Over 100 delegates representing 13 countries attended the conference including speakers representing WHO Euro, the Joint Programming Initiative, and the European patient groups EPF and EGAN. An additional pre-meeting led by Cees Smit (EGAN) was held for the patient group representatives attending the ONCA conference.
