3rd Euroson PoC-US Annual Event

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the third edition of the Euroson PoCUS School Conference in Vienna from 9 to 10 September 2022.

We thank you all for your support in realizing this idea of multidisciplinary collaboration to promote the development and use of Point Of Care Ultrasonography in primary and outpatient healthcare at the European level.

It is a decision that proves the need to increase the quality of care in family medicine or GP offices and improve the accuracy of diagnosis of our patients.

It turned out that in addition to increasing the quality of the examination and the positive results in terms of patient management, there is a decrease in costs in the medical system and a relief in the emergency system. The benefits were demonstrated during the Covid 19 pandemic, when patient mobility became extremely low, especially in remote and rural areas.

Through the participation of the leaders of four organizations worldwide such as WONCA Europe, WFUMB (World Federation of Ultrasonography), EFSUMB (European Federation of Ultrasonography in Medicine and Biology), and EUVEKUS (European Working Group on Ultrasound in Family Medicine) we managed to achieve better communication or networking between our professional organizations and to get to know each other better, but especially to join the ranks and have a closer collaboration through the future participation of Family Physicians Specialists / Doctors, who currently represent a significant percentage of the total number of doctors at European level.

Our conference also invites colleagues from ambulatory healthcare at the European level.

At the last conference, we had a large number of participants both online and on-site from most European countries, including colleagues from Israel and the US, which demonstrates the growing global interest of family physicians in this topic of clinical ultrasound.

We look forward to seeing you again.
