42ND AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND INTENSIVE CARE SOCIETY INTENSIVE CARE ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING / 23RD ANNUAL PAEDIATRIC & NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE CONFERENCE
Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre *Goald Coast, AUSTRALIA Visit the Venue to read more
The ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting, which incorporates the annual Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Conference, will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, 11-13 October 2017.
The Annual Scientific Meeting will be the preeminent critical care conference in Australasia for the calendar year and will be an important platform that will allow doctors, nurses and allied health practitioners to meaningfully connect and discuss new developments and research in the field of intensive and critical care.
The ASM has traditionally taken place on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday, however following consistent feedback received at past events, the 2017 ASM will take place from the Wednesday to Friday, giving attendees the opportunity to enjoy the full weekend, post-event, on the Gold Coast and/or surrounding areas.
The theme of the meeting is “Thinking Outside the Flags” and will focus upon innovative and challenging advances that lie outside the safe zone of current practice, as well as the potential dangers that they may bring.
As always the program will include keynote speakers in the forefront of Intensive Care Medicine and we anticipate the superb location in Australia’s premier holiday destination will attract great interest from both national and international delegates.
The ASM provides an ideal opportunity to network with professionals, make new contacts and establish important relationships with leading intensive care professionals.
We sincerely hope you can join us in this vibrant meeting and we look forward to a memorable and mutually rewarding experience on the Gold Coast in 2017.
