CONFERENCE STRUCTURE

POSTOPERATIVE OUTCOME: THE ROLE OF PERI-AND POSTOPERATIVE CARE

This Monothematic ESRA Conference strives to combine state-of-the-art science with high-quality leisure to provide an authoritative and comprehensive update on the role of peri-and-postoperative care on postoperative patient outcome.

The congress consists of 5 days of lectures covering the most important developments in perioperative care and finishing at lunchtime with ample time for enjoying the facilities of the resort hotel Quinta de Lago and the charms of the beautiful surroundings.

A look at the faculty list will show that each speaker is a well-recognized international authority on his or her topic. It is rare that these experts are coming together in one place to share with You their expertise. This outstanding faculty will focus on a comprehensive review of current issues in postoperative outcome. Some highlights: Enhanced Recovery after surgery(ERAS), chronic postoperative pain, pain management in the difficult patient (high-risk obstetric, elderly, neonatal, addiction disorder, co-morbidities, ambulatory surgery), controversies in pain management, the ‘opioid epidemic’, innovations in regional anaesthesia, US-guided blocks, Acute Pain Services(APS) and more. Each expert is giving 4-8 lectures during the week !

We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Algarve. This course has a limited number of places (max 125 places) and in previous years it was rapidly sold out ! So book early!

Algarve

The Algarve is the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal. It is a region blessed with stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and a glorious climate, all of which combine to create the perfect holiday destination. The Algarve is wonderfully varied, able to appeal to a wide cross-section of tourists; there are pristine beaches, water-parks, buzzing nightlife and historic towns for cultural tour. For more travel info please visit: algarve-tourist.com

Getting to the Algarve

The Algarve can be easily reached from anywhere in continental Europe. A superb network of new motorways and dual carriageways allow for trouble free motoring through attractive areas of southern Portugal. Apart from major holiday periods there is not a problem with traffic congestion. The A22, also known as the Via Infante Sagres Spain is close to Lagos. Roads branch off to beaches, coastal towns and inland villages.

Air travel is certainly the most comfortable and fastest way to get to the sun drenched Algarve. Faro airport is only a few hours from most European destinations. Passengers using the airport as a gateway to the Algarve, will find a modern terminal building located only 4 kilometres from downtown Faro.

Travelling by train is also an option, since Portugal is part of the European rail network and can easily be reached from most of the European capitals.

Getting to the Algarve is part of what makes it one of Europe’s most fascinating holiday destinations. Whether you choose to arrive by plane, car, train or bus, you are bound to be received with a warming and welcoming spirit.

Airport Transfer

Faro Airport is the main international airport of the Algarve and southern Portugal.

The Conrad Algarve Hotel  is 20 minutes drive from Faro Airport.

Airport transfer to Algarve: you can book before your arrival by filling out the booking form, insert your flight details and you will immediately receive the confirmation by email: faroairporttransfersalgarve.com/en/hotel-conrad-algarve

Looking forward to welcoming you in Algarve!
