• 6th IFAD 2017

    November 23-25th 2017
    Hilton Congress Centre, Antwerp, Belgium

    We are very pleased to announce the Sixth International Fluid Academy Days, which will take place on November 23-25th 2017 at the Hilton Hotel in Antwerp, Belgium. The aim of this sixth edition is again to review recent advances in fluid management, and hemodynamic and organ function monitoring in the critical care setting in a comprehensive manner for intensivists, anaesthesiologists and emergency physicians as well as interested internists and surgeons. However the meeting will deal with any broad topic related to critical care. As always it is also a great way to promote professional interaction between faculty members, participants and delegates of the industry.

    The IFAD website content is based on the philosophy of FOAM (Free Open Access Medical education – #FOAMed). The organising committee gives their time freely and receives no financial benefit. This in part explains the wonderful passions for philanthropy, sharing, education and innovation that make the IFAD unique.
