39th ANZICS/ACCCN Intensive Care ASM
The ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting on Intensive Care, which incorporates the annual Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Conference, will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 9 - 11 October 2014.
We have chosen the theme "Critical Care: The High Performance Team", as we believe that the best patient outcomes result from the combined efforts of a high performance team. All team members make vital contributions to achieving the unified goal of delivering the best possible healthcare tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. Australasian intensive care practice exemplifies this approach and recognises the vital role of engaged industry partners as team players.
As always, the scientific program will showcase the best current critical care research and practice, however we have broadened the scope to better include other team members such as emergency clinicians, anaesthetists and allied health practitioners. In addition, we have added some new presentation formats to ensure The ASM remains vibrant and contemporary, and also provide various new opportunities for industry partners.
Of course the social program will continue the tradition of ASM hospitality.
As conference hosts for the ASM in 2014, we invite sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to magnificent Melbourne for a cutting edge meeting which explores, inspires and challenges our concepts of critical care high performance teams.
