9-12 May 2023
Killarney Convention Centre
Please join WADEM from 9-12 May 2023 in beautiful Killarney, Ireland, as we host our first in-person Congress in four years! After a pandemic-induced hiatus following the last Congress in Brisbane, the 22nd edition of the WADEM Congress aims to provide another engaging and dynamic program allied to a unique hospitality-driven Irish experience in one of Ireland’s tourism centers.
With a theme of “Complexity and Continuity: Caring, Coping, and Overcoming in an Increasingly Challenging World,” the scientific program will offer a diversity of professional interests and expertise that explores innovation and best practices globally in disaster medicine, prehospital care, and the health aspects of emergency management and complex humanitarian crises.
Building on the collective experiences in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic response, there will be specific focus on understanding emerging threats, their impact on our current and future communities, as well as the important role of technology in our preparedness and response efforts.
Registration and accommodation are open! Check out the Congress website for more information.
