Travelling with ICARE: SIAARTI meets the doctors on the road with an innovative format
A SIAARTI truck will visit some major hospitals for a program of live events that are going to the physician rather than the other way around. The annual virtual congress which brings together all the physicians will then take place as digital events held over several weeks.
“Travelling with ICARE” is the title of the tour organized by SIAARTI, the Italian Society of Anaesthesia, Analgesia, Intensive Care and Resuscitation, together with AIM Group International. This will involve a series of live events dedicated to anaesthesiologists and resuscitators, which will culminate with the Virtual ICARE 2020 Congress – Digital weeks.
From 21st September to 4th October, the SIAARTI truck will take on tour the values ??and most important topics for the anaesthesiologists and resuscitators, so heavily invested over the last few months when they were dealing with the Covid-19 emergency. The tour will visit the hospitals of 8 Italian cities: Turin, Milan, Brescia, Padua, Bologna, Rome, Naples and Bari.
The “Travelling with ICARE” tour will involve a series of live events held every day from 10:00 to 17:00, offering physicians the opportunity to meet experts, debate and attend round tables and interviews. All the events will be realised in a meeting area in a pop-up outdoor marquee and will follow strict compliance to healthy and preventive measures and social distancing.
“The present restrictions for mass gatherings encouraged us to be more creative and define a totally new format for this important annual congress” explains Gaia Santoro, head of Sponsorship Unit AIM Group International. “SIAARTI would like, not only to shift from in-presence to virtual format, but also to reach the doctors who have worked so intensively over the last few months, to meet them and discuss with them the most important topics and challenges related to the Covid-19 emergency. So we decided to plan a tour with a SIAARTI truck, which will be used to create live events near the major hospitals of important Italian cities. Furthermore, we are preparing a totally renewed virtual annual congress, which will include a new schedule, timetable, content and ways of interaction”.
Anaesthetists and Resuscitators are invited to join the tour in their nearest town.
More info about the congress, that usually gathers about 4,000 anaesthesiologist and resuscitators, will follow in the next weeks.
