GLOBAL EMERGENCY CARE CONFERENCE
‘Together, apart: global emergency care collaboration in the era of COVID-19’.
WORKSHOP: 8 & 9 September 2021 | 8:00 am – 1:00 pm AEST
    SYMPOSIUM: 10 September 2021 | 8:30 am – 5:30 pm AEST

The Conference brings together all types of clinicians and practitioners including nurses, doctors, paramedics, allied health clinicians, researchers, development specialists, educators and health administrators. Join us to learn more about global emergency care opportunities, and the experiences of experts in the field.

The theme this year is ‘Together, apart: Global Emergency Care collaboration in the era of COVID-19’.  Sessions will explore the innovative approaches that the global emergency care community has used to respond to COVID-19, and to strengthen emergency care capacity in the face of pandemic travel restrictions. We will discuss a ‘new normal’ – how we can harness innovation and technology to build partnerships and effective collaborations for global emergency care improvement.

 

GLOBAL EMERGENCY CARE WORKSHOP
Wednesday 8 & Thursday 9 September 2021 | 8.00am – 1.00pm AEST

An interactive, small group workshop developed by a team of clinicians with extensive experience working with multiple aid/health organisations in countries such as Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa and Afghanistan.

The Workshop is your opportunity to develop the skills you need, before engaging in emergency care projects across the world. Explore and discuss:

  • The current status of emergency care globally.
  • The identified priorities for global emergency care development projects and clinicians.
  • How to complete a needs assessment.
  • How to create, develop and deliver a project framework.
  • The essential toolkit of skills, networks and resources an emergency care clinician requires.
