SCANDINAVIAN INTENSIVIST MEETING
13-15 May in Copenhagen
Scandinavian Intensivist Meeting is an initiative to enforce Scandinavian academic Intensive Care Medicine. For more than 25 years a network has collaborated to strengthen Intensive Care Medicine in Scandinavia. This has to a large extent been within SSAI and within ESICM. We have started and developed the Scandinavian intensivist training program within SSAI, and initiated SSCTG, the research network.
A regular meeting-point is advantageous to strengthen the network. The Scandinavian Intensivist Meetings serves this purpose. The concept is a low-budget biannual meeting in May/June with thematic single-sessions, short presentations and plenty of time for discussions. The initial 3 meetings from 2014-2018 were housed in Helsinki, now we move to Copenhagen. SSAI has generously offered a sponsorship for the next 2 meetings.
Our 4th meeting May 13-15 2020 will have ‘Better life-support in ICU’ as theme. Invited key-note speakers Francois Lamontagne (Canada) and Jean Christophe Richard (France) will present data from large randomised clinical trials on life-support (65 Trial and BIRDS trial, respectively).
A warm welcome
