Due to the very uncertain situation regarding the Corona pandemic (that we have no certainty at all what the situation will be in Athens in April 2021) WoCoVA had to decide that the 6th WoCoVA will only be virtual. Although we find this very sad for all stakeholders, we believe it is the best decision considering the knowledge we currently have.
We can inform you that the virtual 6th WoCoVA will go forward Thursday 29 and Friday 30 April 2021. The focus of the congress will be on the same topics as originally planned. In January 2021 we will provide more information on the program and registration.
For those who already registered for WoCoVA of June 2020, we move all current registrations to a virtual registration for the April 2021 event. This means that you can watch all presentation from your office or your home. For those already having a ticket for the 6th WoCoVA meeting, WoCoVA will refund the difference in costs in Q1 2021.
‘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 are planned between September 2020 and the virtual 6th WoCoVA congress in April 2021. Each session will contain 2 topics of each 45 minutes.
Next ‘Meet the Experts’ session: 19 January, 2021. Read more and registration
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 and Projects.
GloVANet aims to be the worldwide network to enhance global awareness on vascular access and improve patient care. Read more
Because it took longer before the latest research and developments could be presented at the 6th WoCoVA in Athens, Greece, we looked for a new way to keep the WoCoVA community alive and connected. On the 17 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.
