Dear Friends,

thanks to your “never-ending faith” in GIMBE and its staff, once again we had a great Conference!

Sicilian land with its perfumes, colours, food and wines always creates the “ideal frame” for the Conference.

While leaving Taormina, we hope you take home in your (not lost) luggage the unforgettable days we spent together. 

I am happy and proud of our “worldwide family” that – other than developing and spreading EBHC know-how & knowledge – looks forward to meeting, dining, wining, laughing and dancing.

Well, thank you for being part of this “terrific EBHC group”, from all five continents.

So now, it is time to launch a call for interest to the rest of the planets and, why not,… outside the Solar System!

Hoping to have the honour to organize for you the 6thEBHC International Conference and…to meet you again in Sicily, from 26th to 30th October 2011


Arrivederci from…

            Nino, the "boss"

                       Elena, Marco, Andrea, the visible GIMBE's staff

                                   Roberto, Francesca, Francesco, Chiara… the hidden GIMBE's staff

                                              Annamaria, Paola, Angela & Deborah, your wonderful assistants

I want to thank you for everything. I very much enjoyed the conference and I am grateful to have the opportunity to present my EBP program. This conference was one of the most organized and well-run of many that I have attended and I am so thankful for the opportunity to attend. You and your team did such a fine job and I know you did so much work and it showed. Thank you again very much and I look forward to keeping in touch!

Please convey my thanks to everyone at GIMBE - hidden and not hidden. It was a wonderfully organised conference and so friendly and helpful. It is not surprising that there are very positive outcomes from this conference and not just interesting activities during it. It is what makes the conference unique. With very best wishes.

Dear Nino and all the GIMBE team, Thank you for a Conference that sits majestically above all others! I have never danced, sung, laughed and learned so much in a Conference. I cannot wait until the next one. Well done, and again, thank you.

Thank you too to all of you for taking care of all of us! I’m now safely back home. Cheers.

Dear Sicily EBHC friends and colleagues,
It was a great pleasure to meet you in Sicily. I echo Nino's comments that the meeting was a great success: excellent presentations, fruitful networking, and many new friends from all corners of the world. Thank-you for sharing your ideas with me. I have returned to Canada fully energized for applying best evidence in my practice. I hope you feel the same way.
I would be happy to hear from you if you learned something tangible that you plan to implement in your practice, in your teaching, or in your research. I would also be happy to hear from you regarding what went very well, and what could have been better. This will help us in planning for 2011.
Of course, another very different type of culmination of the meeting was the food fight, led by our fearless leader RAMBO (aka Nino, and hardly recognizable after donning a bandana for disguise), and the various cultural styles of singing and dancing thereafter (you know who you are!). Now I know why they suggested it was for "only the brave".>
Many thanks to Nino, the whole GIMBE team for a seamless meeting. You and the team are very well organized and delightful to work with.
Many thanks, too, to the steering committee (Paul Glasziou, Ayman Afify, Lubna Al-Ansary, Jeff Andrews, Atto Billio, Jose Emparanza, Madelon Finkel, Janet Harris, Martin Than, and Julie Tilson) for your tireless commitment to the planning over the past year.
I hope to see you all in 2 years.

Dear Nino and team,
Thank you for yet another wonderful conference. It's truly a brilliant conference - the mixture of presentations, workshops and theme groups at this year's conference was a great initiative. I had a great time as always catching up with new friends, and making new ones, over the fabulous dinners, wine and occasional food fight! Well done "Zio Nino" and all of the wonderful GIMBE team... looking forward to seeing you all again very soon!

Dear Nino and the rest of the staff!
Thank you so much for making this conference an unforgettable experience- both the conference programme, the surroundings, the atmosphere, hospitality, food, wine, climate, smiles and friendliness! Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year.
Best wishes.
