Improving global prehospital and emergency medicine, public health, and disaster health care and preparedness

Killarney, Ireland – 2023

More than 650 delegates from over 46 countries gathered at the Killarney Convention Centre in May for WADEM’s first in-person congress in four years to present their research, exchange ideas and experiences, and (re)connect with friends and colleagues. Special thanks to Lord Nigel Crisp, Dr. Saleh Fares Al-Ali, Dr. Ronan Glynn, Prof. Virginia Murray, Prof. Tony Redmond, and Flavio Salio for their plenary presentations.

WADEM would especially like to thank all the delegates, many of whom traveled long distances, for joining us Killarney! The wide variety of professions and nationalities represented truly make the congress a dynamic event.
