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.
