5th Euregional Maastricht Symposium on Immune Compromised Traveller (5th EUMICT 2018)

Invitation

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the organising and the scientific committee, we are happy to invite you to participate in the "5th Euregional Maastricht Symposium on Immune Compromised Traveller 2018" (5th EUMICT 2018), which will take place on Friday May 18th 2018 in Maastricht, The Netherlands (www.minc.eu/eumict).
Theme of this 5th symposium is "Studies in the region" (see program).

Medical counseling for travellers with an altered immunity is challenging, because data and evidence based guidelines for this growing population are (very) limited or lacking. In general guidelines for the immunocompetent traveller are followed, but great uncertainties about protective immunisation, adverse events, reactivation of underlying disease and other preventive measures remain. Meeting the great need for a regular update concerning this subject, we organise this biennial symposium since 2009. Because data on immune compromised traveller are limited the scope of the EUMICT is now extended to immunisation in the immune compromised host, since findings in this group can be extrapolated to the traveller. The previous symposia have been evaluated very well by the participants (see www.minc.eu/eumict).
The target audience for the 5th EUMICT 2018 is medical doctors, medical specialists, advanced nurse practisioners and other certified prescribers of medicines managing and counseling immune compromised patients in the EU-region of Maastricht, being The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg, but of course professionals outside this region are also more than welcome.
We aim to give state of the art insights on several medical aspects concerning the immune compromised traveller, thus improving knowledge and subsequently safe travelling for this population. Also we aim to facilitate networking and cooperation in this field of research.

We are looking forward to welcome you to the 5th EUMICT 2018, Friday May 18th.

On behalf of the organising and scientific committee,
Dr. Selwyn H. Lowe, MD PhD, Chair 5th EUMICT 2018, internist-consultant infectious diseases, Section Infectious Diseases, Department of Medical Microbiology and Department of Internal Medicine, Maastricht University Medical Center, Maastricht, The Netherlands.
