Welcome to the Dutch North Sea Emergency Medicine Conference 2018 in Egmond aan Zee!
Our annual conference of the NSEP. The Netherlands Society of Emergency Physicians (NSEP) was founded in Amsterdam in 1999. At that time in The Netherlands, emergency medicine as an independent medical specialty was only an idea. Nowadays, eighteen years later, over 450 trained emergency physicians are working in 85 out of 93 emergency departments, of which sixteen are staffed by emergency physicians 24/7. In 27 training hospitals 150 residents are being trained. In a short period emergency medicine has become the future quality standard for emergency care in The Netherlands.
As part of these dynamic developments we have been organizing the Dutch North Sea Emergency Medicine Conference (DEMC) since 2007. Over the years the Conference has grown in number of visitors from the Netherlands and abroad.
Last year we celebrated a great tenth edition of our conference. This year the 11th will take place May 31st and June 1st; with precourses on May 30th. And of course beach house “De Schelp” will traditionally be hosting the beach BBQ and party on Thursday evening. Important to note that the conference will be mainly Dutch spoken, unless indicated otherwise in the programme.
On behalf of all committee members we welcome emergency physicians and other physicians interested in emergency medicine from The Netherlands, Europe and other parts of the world.
See you in Egmond!
