Call for workshops

Workshops are interactive presentations on clinical aspects of care, educational topics, simulations of clinical settings or demonstrations of tools or devices. Also debate sessions on controversial topics are open for submission. To ensure a well-balanced program for the EfCCNa congress in Utrecht we seek proposals that address topics through a diversity of perspectives. The workshops can be presented by one or a group of presenters. The duration of a workshop is normally 60 or 90 minutes in total.
