Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to the 4th European Conference on Paediatric and Neonatal Cardiac Intensive Care!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to welcome you to Montreux, Switzerland for the fourth edition of this conference. Inspired by the success of the past three events we have strived to organize the 4th Conference, again focusing on the main objective to serve the multidisciplinary community involved with critical paediatric and congenital cardiac patients in Europe and across the world.

Following on from last time, the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society (PCICS) will again join the Working Group on Paediatric Cardiovascular Intensive Care (WGPCIC) of the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology (AEPC), and the European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC), to offer an international forum for sharing of good experience.

As before, we believe that the crucial principle of inter-disciplinary work can only result in improving the management of paediatric cardiac patients.

Topics will be revisiting the state of the art management practices, new available technologies and drugs, as well as the current initiatives for quality improvement, safety and clinical effectiveness. The conference will promote interactivity, and offer main conferences, open forums and workshops in different areas.

The purpose of this conference is to offer the opportunity to involve practitioners from different fields in discussions with key experts and internationally known speakers on various topics, in a spontaneous, relaxed atmosphere.

In light of this spirit, we invite you to participate and to help us make this 4th Edition of the European Conference on Paediatric and Neonatal Cardiac Intensive Care another successful, enriching experience.
