6th European Conference on Weaning and Rehabilitation in Critically ill Patients






The 6th European Conference on Weaning & Rehabilitation in Critically ill Patients is a multidisciplinary conference focusing on weaning and rehabilitation in and after admission to the Intensive Care Unit, and is the annual event of the European ICU Recovery Network. The ICU RECOVERY NETWORK is an international, multidisciplinary and multiprofessional organization with more than 900 members representing all five continents. It was founded in 2011. Participation is for free, but exclusively to clinicians. ICU Recovery Network includes sub-networks, located in several countries. To date, there are sub-networks in Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Greece and Japan. The website of the network is www.mobilization-network.org.

Our 2018 programme includes updates on current evidence and its application into the field of weaning and rehabilitation, and provides an exciting forum to network and share advances and experiences in clinical practice around the management of critically ill patients.
