About the European Congress for Integrative Medicine (ECIM)

The congress aims to bring together medical doctors, practitioners, healthcare professionals, scientists, researchers, practitioners and health politicians to facilitate the advancement of healthcare systems that reaffirm the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focus on the whole person, and combine conventional medicine with safe and effective evidence-informed, lifestyle, complementary and traditional methods of treatment.

Integrative Medicine Conference: A long-established event that was first launched in Germany in 2008 and has since been held in Italy, Spain, Denmark, Hungary, Slovenia and Serbia; attracting thousands of experts from throughout Europe with its largest event attracting over 1000 delegates’

This will be the first time that the event will be held in the United Kingdom and it provides a unique opportunity to bring together organisations and experts from multi-disciplines who share the same vision for a more holistic, patient-centred approach to healthcare and who recognise that real change occurs when people and organisations start working together.

Over the three days, the congress will feature senior level keynote speakers presenting evidence informed papers on the latest research and clinical application of integrative medicine, plus a large number of oral and poster presentations alongside an international exhibition of associations and companies providing integrative healthcare solutions. The Congress provides the perfect opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world and explore new collaborations with like-minded individuals.

About the European Society of Integrative Medicine (ESIM)

ESIM is an international association with the aim to facilitate the advancement of science, research, education and further training, to support best and evidence based medical care and to provide advice on policy in the realm of Integrative Medicine (the interaction between conventional and complementary medicine based on evidence based results).

This includes holding the annual European Congress for Integrative Medicine and conducting dialogue with professional health care and public health associations and institutions.

The society is part of a global movement to orient care, and the education, research and policy that support it, towards a model that draws on biomedical, complementary and traditional medicine practices and respects multiple philosophies. The ESIM was one of the founding organisations that developed The Berlin Agreement: Self-Responsibility and Social Action in Practicing and Fostering Integrative Medicine and Health Globally: Berlin Agreement

The work of the ESIM is altruistic and seeks to be for the benefit of the general public.
