European Congress for Integrative Medicine, 4-7 November 2021


It was hoped the 13th congress would have taken place for the first time in the United Kingdom, however with the continued uncertainty and travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, ESIM, ISCRM and the organisers have taken the difficult decision to hold the congress online.


With more than 540 abstracts submitted for the call for abstracts and a fantastic line up of keynote speakers, the congress is brimming with the latest in Integrative Medicine. The aim is 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. The advantage of holding the congress online is the ability to welcome speakers and delegates from across the globe.


Over the four days, the congress will feature senior level keynote speakers and a large number of oral presentations and posters presenting evidence-informed papers on the latest research and clinical applications of Integrative Medicine alongside an international exhibition of associations and companies providing integrative healthcare solutions.
