In June 2020 the 6th WoCoVA could not take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic. GloVANet is pleased to inform you that the 6th WoCoVA will now take place from the 7-9 April 2021 in Athens. The focus of the congress will be on the same topics as originally planned but it will be a hybrid event with a corona-proof physical event in Athens which will also immediately be streamed online for those not being able to join physically.

Whatever the situation in Athens in April 2021, the 6th WoCoVA will go forward. We will make sure that in each situation there will be possibilities to share knowledge and possibilities to network.

For those who already registered for WoCoVA of June 2020, we move all registrations to 2021. If you are not able to join the physical congress in 2021, we will change your subscription to an online-subscription, so you can watch all presentation from home or your office and we will refund the difference in costs. Find here the updated program and registration.

‘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 6th WoCoVA congress in 2021 in Athens (April 7 to 9). Each session will contain 2 topics of each 45 minutes.

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.
