Meetings and Courses

The group has held meetings in different European cities in most years since 1987. LICAGE has participated in a joint congress with the ILTS and ELITA (the European Liver and Intestinal Transplant Association), approximately every third year. Collaborations with other organisations have also been successful. These include the European Association for Study of the Liver (EASL), the International Anaesthesia Research Society, the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland, and national centres in India and South America.

We have also run very popular courses on Anaesthesia and Critical Care for Liver Transplantation in Newcastle (2005), Caen (2007) and Vienna (2009), freestanding or integrated with a scientific meeting featuring abstracts. They are intended to be comprehensive introductions for novice liver transplant anaesthesiologists, as well as refresher courses for those with more experience.

Note that declining industry support for educational meetings has made smaller specialist meetings more difficult to fund. Clinicians remain reluctant to pay the full cost of these activities, since this would more require a two-to-three-fold increase in the typical registration fee. Under the leadership of Secretary/Treasurer Claus-Georg Krenn we are building alternative sources of support, and subscription or sponsorship fees for website resources may help fund meetings in future.
