Dear colleagues and friends!
The 13th St. Petersburg Venous Forum, as we already reported, will take place at the Holiday Inn St. Petersburg on December 4-5, 2020.
For the first time, the Forum will be held in a mixed format in a limited number for participants in accordance with the decree of the Governor of St. Petersburg and the requirements of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor). All speakers and co-speakers, members of the Organizing Committee, members of the Expert Council of the St. Petersburg Association of Phlebologists, the Council of the National Collegium of Phlebologists, invited specialists from other organizations, medical communities and professional groups can take part in the Forum in person. The leading companies whose activities are related to the most pressing issues of practical phlebology, related to the daily work of doctors of various specialties, including during a pandemic, have been invited to the exhibition of medical equipment and medicine being organized. Discussions with foreign colleagues will be held online with the active participation of the audience and participants who will join us from many countries of the world. We will discuss topical issues of real clinical practice, the need and possibility of joint work on international clinical guidelines, the most controversial cornerstone issues of vein surgery, medicine therapy for chronic and acute venous diseases, as well as the realities of compression therapy today.
With special care, from the point of view of the safety of the participants, we will approach the organization of the cultural program of the gala dinner, which will take place at the restaurant “Astoria” on December 4th.
Dear friends, I am sure that observing simple caution at this difficult time, we will be able not only to communicate in a highly professional manner, but also, as always, enjoy the Christmas atmosphere of St. Petersburg.
