The JIVD and ERCA organizations are delighted to announce that their second joint meeting will take place in Lyon, France from the 26th to the 28th of March 2015.

JIVD for its 14th edition is back in Lyon!

Following on from the success of our respective meetings (from 1989 for JIVD and 2004 for ERCA) and of our first joint venture held in Barcelona (2012) we are working closely together to make our next joint congress even more successful. Our aim is to propose a convivial gathering which will be of great scientific and professional interest to all health professionals – physicians, allied health professionals, technicians, and home care providers – with an interest in respiratory care from the acute setting to home mechanical ventilation.

We were able to rely on the support of an international advisory board not only to elaborate a scientific program reflecting the specificities of each organization but also to organize some joint sessions.

The meeting is open to patients for whom a specific and original program will be organized.

We again look forward to uniting our experience in order to optimize our resources and achieve our common goals of promoting knowledge and understanding of respiratory concerns in order to ensure optimal patient respiratory care.

We rely on your participation to make the most of this platform for exchanging knowledge and expertise to the profit of all.

We look forward to welcoming you in large numbers to the wonderful city of Lyon where many changes have occurred since the last JIVD meeting. For you to discover!
