Dear Colleagues,

Since the COVID-19 pandemic is going on with traveling restrictions and rules for social distancing we are not able to run a congress with presence in Berlin. Your safety is our highest priority.

We have switched to a totally virtual congress with a changed time frame.

Almost 100 years ago Prof. Georg Haas performed the first successful hemodialysis in Gießen (Germany). Since then renal replacement therapies have improved substantially and the development continues steadily.
The Vascular Access Society (VAS) is a multidisciplinary society of vascular access experts driving continuous improvement in the field of vascular access. The biannually VAS Congress will bring together the international community of clinicians, vascular technologists, nurses, and researchers, devoted to the important issue of vascular access.

The scientific program will provide a three-day meeting with state-of-the-art lectures about new developments in clinical practice, basic research as well as the latest results from clinical trials. Within the scientific program you will also find sessions dedicated with nursing related topics.
The scientific program is preceded by two virtual workshop for physicians and nurses.

Dear friends, keep the date April 6–9, 2021 free for the anniversary 12th congress of the Vascular Access Society!

With our best regards and hoping to meet all of you during our virtual congress!

Christian Hohl
