World Congress on Vascular Access (WoCoVA)




The 7th World Congress on Vascular Access (WoCoVA) ‘Lessons Learned from the Pandemic’ will be held in 2022 from March 16 – 18th in Greece. It will take place at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre, in the center of Athens. The call for abstracts and registration will open soon.

WoCoVA has grown in 10 years to much more than just a congress. In order to better organize the efforts and actions in the field of vascular access it was decided that there should be an overarching organization to cover all activities that are nowadays executed. The Global Vascular Access Network (GloVANet) umbrella organization was created with WoCoVA being the largest and most important activity. Other areas which can be found within GloVANet are Education & Training, Data & Research and Other Events & Projects.

GloVANet aims to be the worldwide network to enhance global awareness on vascular access and improve patient care.

Because it took longer before the latest research and developments could be presented at the 6th WoCoVA, we looked for a new way to keep the WoCoVA community alive and connected. On the 17th and 18th of June GloVANet offered a 2 day online event to update everyone interested on vascular access on the topic of VA and COVID-19 patients.

‘Meet the Experts’ is a GloVANet/WoCoVA online educational learning opportunity on Vascular Access topics of interest. In order not to have an information vacuum due to postponing the 6th WoCoVA, four ‘Meet the Experts’ sessions were held between September 2020 and the virtual 6th WoCoVA congress in April 2021. Each session contained 2 topics of each 45 minutes.
