Media coverage of Euroanaesthesia 2022

There were many different things competing for news during our congress this year, including of course the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, Queen Elizabeth’s 70th Jubilee celebrations in the UK, and the annual meetings of both the American Diabetes Association and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Despite this, Euroanaesthesia was covered in major outlets, with coverage particularly strong in the UK. Below is a summary of the coverage, not all links are included.
