40 Years of Anesthesia
 

Dear colleagues,

The department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine in the University Hospital UZ Brussel (VUB) celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2017. On this occasion, we organise the International Symposium, entitled Learning from the Past to Adapt in the Future on May 6, 2017.

Anaesthesia and anaesthetics underwent a striking development throughout all these years. We invited marked international speakers who will discuss both the evolution of anaesthesia in all its aspects and future perspectives.

This event is the perfect moment to bring all anaesthetists together, who once passed this institute throughout their training.

Furthermore, it is an opportunity for all other anaesthetists, nurse anaesthetists, OR collaborators, specialists of other disciplines to obtain a broad overview of the (r)evolution which evolved within the anaesthetic scientific world.

We hope to see many of you in Brussels.
