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.

Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society

The Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) is the leading advocate on all intensive care related matters. ANZICS leads the world in intensive care research through its Clinical Trials Group and patient databases, including the Adult Patient Database, the Paediatric Intensive Care Registry and Critical Care Resources.

The Society is devoted to all aspects of intensive care medical practice through ongoing professional education, the provision of leadership in medical settings, clinical research and analysis of critical care resources. ANZICS and ACCCN jointly hold the largest Critical Care Conference in Australasia annually attracting over 1000 delegates from across both nations, as well as receiving international attention. The ASM is highly regarded as one of the key events in the Intensive Care calendar, due to the expansive Scientific Program and the world class social events. The ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting is unique in the Intensive Care Community due to the wide range of delegates consisting of Intensivists, Nurses, Allied Heath, Paediatrics and an increasing number of Junior Medical and Nursing attendees.

Together the array of Medical, Nursing and Allied Health Professionals create a diverse and expansive scientific program and help shape the Intensive Care landscape across Australia and New Zealand.
