Resuscitation 2014, May 15–17 in Bilbao Spain

Only 4 weeks to go!

The Spanish programme has been extended from a morning session only to a full day session on May 15. The English 3-day programme starts on May 15 at 13h30 and ends on May 17 at 16h30. The full programme can be downloaded HERE

If you have not yet done so… you can register for the congress HERE.

We already have more congress registrations than expected and still counting!
Because Bilbao is also a highly popular tourist destination, EVENTIA has pre-blocked rooms in different price categories for the ERC Congress. However, availability is limited and decreasing as we speak. Be advised to book your accommodation as soon as possible. You can book HERE

We are happy to announce that Zoll, principal sponsor of the congress, will yet again organise an interesting scientific lunch session. Moreover, entry is open to all congress participants. Pre-register HERE in order to secure your spot. 

European Restart A Heart Day

Mark October 16th in your diary!

The second annual European Restart a Heart Day will be focusing on “Loved Ones" this year, following the success of our children themed day last year. At the moment we are working hard on getting the posters and website ready and we look forward to the big launch next month...

Start thinking about how you will get involved! #restartaheart

ERC & Social Media

Many of you will already be aware of our presence on the various social media platforms. We have added some handy links to the bottom of our newsletter to make it easier to keep up to date.

By joining our 33,000 followers on our Facebook page you get to see photo albums of our events and courses all over Europe. You can find links to the Facebook pages of our National Resuscitation Councils and Sponsors, and keep up to date with any news from our side.

Twitter is a great place to catch up on what is going on in the world of resuscitation as it happens. On our Twitter page we share news items and studies about resuscitation from around the world.

It is also a great way to interact with people in the field. For example, if you search for hashtag #restartaheart you see all tweets about this topic, adding #restartaheart to your tweet includes you in the worldwide conversation!

Would you like to interact with people who will attend our congress in Bilbao next month? Search for or type #erc14bilbao and you will immediately get the latest news on the congress. This tool is great fun during the congress as you can quickly see what the attendants think about the various sessions. Even if you can’t make it to the congress, this is a great way to keep up to date as to what is happening on the ground.

We will be very active on social media during the congress,
so now is the time to GET SIGNED UP and start following us so you don’t miss anything!
