Who are we?

Being a medical specialist in acute care you often encounter other colleagues in the setting of an acute patient. In these moments cooperation is of great importance. Nevertheless, most congresses and refresher courses are organized from a specific focus area.

In 2017, the idea was born to organize an innovative conference, joining together all specialties involved in the general care of the critically ill patient. Annemarie van der Velden, Emergency physician and initiator, has looked for like-minded colleagues. Together they form a team that is focused on exchanging experiences and promoting cooperation.

ResusNL is an innovative medical congress, stimulating everyone to become even better in treating critically patients.

Hotel suggestions


Emergency and critical care is a team sport. We need to work closely together with many other people to resuscitate patients. Although many conferences are focusing on fancy new techniques, it is more important to get the basics right in every patient. And this is very challenging already! This inspired us to create a conference aimed at high-performance resuscitation and critical care and improvement of collaboration between the different disciplines. The conference is a great chance for you to exchange ideas and best-practices.

We would like to welcome you to the heart of Amsterdam and share ideas, skills and ambitions on resuscitation! This is ResusNL!
