The ICEP-Q 2016 will be a major international event in Emergency Medicine and Public Health, involving a great lineup of distinguished international speakers from a wide spectrum of emergency care and public health organizations across the world. We expect more than 1000 delegates from all around the world to come together for this unique event to share and discuss their experience in the field of Emergency Medicine and Public Health.
Emergency Medicine as a specialty holds an integral position in addressing several public health concerns such as management of chronic conditions, injuries and health risks and the delivery of clinical and preventive services. In Qatar and many other parts of the world, Emergency Departments serve as points of entry into the healthcare system for a large percentage of the population; hence the conference intends to highlight the importance of focusing on the crucial interface between two major domains of healthcare - Emergency Medicine and Public Health. Additionally, emergency departments serve as sites of surveillance for the public health community.
Public health refers to all organized measures, whether public or private, to prevent disease, promote health and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and it focuses on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases. Thus, public health is concerned with the total system and not only the eradication of a particular disease.
The scientific program aims to cover infectious disease, trauma, pediatric emergency medicine, medical toxicology, emergency ultrasound, medical education, emergency psychiatry, pre-hospital and disaster medicine, emergency nursing and many other relevant topics. The scientific program will be further enriched by an exhibition featuring the latest innovations in healthcare, technology and pharmaceuticals.
