Message from the President
With great pleasure, we announce that Ocean Medical is organizing, for the first time, its Emergency International Congress. It will take place in May, from the 22nd to the 29th, at Taguspark Congress Centre, in Oeiras, Portugal.
Ocean Medical is a Portuguese emergency medical training center, founded in 2008. With exponential growth and always based on quality, rigor, innovation, and continuous improvement, it is currently the largest International Training Center of the American Heart Association in Europe.
With a group of instructors made up exclusively of Physicians and Nurses, experts in emergency and critical care, the moment arises to reflect on the taken path, analyze the current challenges of the emergency, and where we should proceed.
Under the theme “Today's evidence, tomorrow's training”, we’ve prepared an audacious program, with national and international speakers, experts, and references in their areas. With a comprehensive perspective of the different sectors involved in emergency situations, the focus will be on efficient and up-to-date examples of care and technological development to support clinical practice.
The lectures will take place on May 25th and 26th. The congress will be enriched with innovative courses, that will occur pre and post-congress, and also with a live competition in Basic Life Support, placement of mechanical compression devices, and Advanced Life Support.
We count on your presence in what will be the first of our many congresses, where we can share experiences, stimulate reflection, acquire knowledge, challenge resuscitation skills, and develop skills.
