Welcome to the 12th Dutch North Sea Emergency Medicine Conference 2019 in Egmond aan Zee! Since 2007 we have been organizing the Dutch North Sea Emergency Medicine Conference (DEMC). Over the years the Conference has grown in number of visitors and last year’s edition was again a great succes! As part of these dynamic developments we are proud to host our twelfth edition of our yearly conference. At the conference you will have the opportunity to share your experiences with colleagues from the Netherlands and broaden your knowledge about EM, through the presentations and hands on education by several workshops. In addition, EM research will be presented by oral presentations and posters. New this year is the TED EM track, where innovative ideas are shared. Of course our conference will be preceded by various pre-courses organized by national and international EM physicians. This years edition we will celebrate the DSEPs 20th anniversary and we are proud that our organization is growing in the right direction to reach our objectives. See you in Egmond on 5, 6 or 7th of June 2019.
