On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to welcome you to Marbella, Spain for the fifth edition of this conference. Inspired by the success of the past four events we have strived to organize the 5th Conference, again focusing on the main objective to serve the multidisciplinary community involved with critical paediatric and congenital cardiac patients in Europe and across the world.
As before, we believe that the crucial principle of inter-disciplinary work can only result in improving the management of paediatric cardiac patients.
Topics will be revisiting the state of the art management practices, new available technologies and drugs, as well as the current initiatives for quality improvement, safety and clinical effectiveness. The conference will promote interactivity, and offer main conferences, open forums and workshops in different areas.
The purpose of this conference is to offer the opportunity to involve practitioners from different fields in discussions with key experts and internationally known speakers on various topics, in a spontaneous, relaxed atmosphere.
In light of this spirit, we invite you to participate and to help us make this 5th Edition of the European Conference on Paediatric and Neonatal Cardiac Intensive Care another successful, enriching experience.
