Dear Colleagues

It is with great excitement that we welcome you to the Xth Decennial World Academic Congress of Emergency Medicine (WACEM) the XVth Italian GREAT Network Congress (GREAT-ITALY) & the Annual Congress of Italian Association of patients with Heart Failure (AISC), in the City of Rome, Italy. Supported by various Institutions and Organizations across the world, WACEM24 guarantees an academic feast second to none.

WACEM2024 represents a global partnership focused on advancing patient cantered education, research and care across the world.

The main objective of The World Academic Congress of Emergency Medicine 2024 is to advance emergency medicine, acute care, critical interventions and preventive medicine skills by supporting EM pioneers and leaders around the globe, by endorsing proper standards, providing training and education, as well as promoting proper access and services for all our emergency patients anywhere in the world.

The Theme for WACEM24 is based on 5 innovative pillars 1) Longevity/Geriatric Emergency Medicine 2) Biomarkers 3) Telemedicine, Artificial Intelligence Technology 4) Patient-centred Healthcare system and 5) Transformational Innovative  Models In Education & Research

Building bridges between Clinical Medicine & Longevity/Geriatric Sciences, the Scientific Team of WACEM24 has devised a novel approach to focus the presentations on Patients as well as Patient Care Providers namely Physicians, Nurses, Medical Students, Residents, Paramedics and Technicians. Helping patients to survive in emergency medical conditions is equally important as much as the sustainable long-term health of all patient care providers implementing the preventive medicine concept.

The partnership of WACEM with GREAT Italy Network aims to standardize the clinical and organizational system approach in acute disease management all over the world and to encourage young physicians to do research on acute conditions through the concept of “Translational Medicine” and the conduction of multi-centre clinical trials. Thanks to this strong research activity, since its inception a significant number of scientific articles by WACEM leaders have been published in very important international journals. Our joint effort will add innovation and special flavour to WACEM24 and will provide exceptional momentum and value to our speakers and participants also providing the opportunity to publish their selected contributions to the congress in international journals.

Together, we shall continue to develop and promote exceptional international networks and to build bridges of knowledge, research, and activism.

I welcome you all to the City of Science, Sociality and Spirituality ROMA, Italy.
