7th European conference on Weaning and Rehabilitation in Critically ill Patients

Move as ONE TEAM: rapid recovery from critical illness can be achieved when professionals and patients act as ONE TEAM. This conference shows you how to do this!
Invite your entire ICU team, including doctors, rehabilitation physicians, physician assistants, nurse practioners, nurses, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dietitians, psychologists and social workers.


Registration fee: € 210,00

Welcome drinks | Friday November 8th | 18:00 – 19:00 hrs

Join us for some drinks and Dutch snacks on Friday evening in café In de Waag.

The café was originally built in 1488, located in the heart of Amsterdam and a characteristic monumental structure, lit by 300 candles.

The building also houses a historical Theatrum Anatomicum which was built in 1691 as a space for anatomical lectures dedicated to advanced experimenting, observing and learning. In the centre stood a dissection table on which the corpse of a recently executed criminal could be cut up. These demonstrations were open to the public and proved immensely popular in Amsterdam. It was especially for the theatre that Rembrandt painted his famous Anatomical Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp in 1632, currently at the Mauritshuis in The Hague.

The costs are € 7,50 per person.

Conference dinner ticket | Saturday November 9th | 19:00 - 22:00 hrs

On Saturday evening, November 9th, we invite our conference delegates to attend the conference dinner.

It will be an event where you can mingle with your colleagues and share food and wine. The dinner location “Tolhuistuin” has a scenic overlook of Amsterdam’s skyline and is reached by a 3-minute ferry ride from Amsterdam Central Station.

You can purchase your conference dinner ticket at the time of your conference registration. The costs are € 50,00 per person.

NEW: Best practice video's

For the 2019 Amsterdam conference we introduce a new program item: best practice video.

A selection of short video’s will be shown in the plenary program on Sunday.

What (extra) activities do you undertake to improve the care for your (chronic) ICU patient? Is there a particular practice in your ICU you are proud of? Think about interdisciplinary team efforts regarding weaning, rehabilitation or family participation.


Unfortunally it is no longer possible to sumbit a best practice video.
