Renowned speakers, top-class lectures and stimulating discussions – all this made up the ITI Congress Switzerland held at the Kursaal in Bern on May 9. The congress entitled “Erfolg und Misserfolg: Zwei Seiten der Medaille” offered its 370 participants many opportunities to benefit from a well-balanced program, get insight into treatment concepts that reflect ITI guidelines and talk to experts and colleagues.
The main topic of the congress was prevention of failures, their early recognition and appropriate therapeutic actions to deal adequately with failures. The different aspects of success and failure were addressed by a strong faculty made up of national speakers, among them Niklaus Lang, Michael Bornstein, Urs Brägger and Karl Dula, as well as a number of international experts, including Tara Renton and Hans-Peter Weber. “Participants were extremely satisfied with the high academic quality of the lectures, the variety of clinically relevant and practical recommendations as well as the truly amazing organization of the event in general”, said Nicola U. Zitzmann, Chair of the Scientific Program Committee. Apart from providing a scientifically attractive program based on the ITI’s philosophy of sharing knowledge and increasing practitioners’ expertise, the goal of the congress was to get participants engaged in a critical reflection on current treatment concepts. “In this regard, the case presentations by four young clinicians from each of our Swiss universities as well as the subsequent round table discussion about their treatment concepts were a highlight”.
The diverse scientific program was complemented by a presentation of the ITI Online Academy as well as an industry exhibition, which provided an overview of the latest products in the field.
