It's only two months until the Bedside Critical Care Conference, and this year is looking like a cracker!

We're going back to tropical Cairns for the crit care conference with a difference – small, friendly and packed with superb practical crit care education.

After popular demand we’re going back to beautiful Queensland in the September/October school holidays. Come to the gateway of the Great Barrier Reef at the perfect time of year, where you’re guaranteed to have a great time, whether you’re there with your family or you’re there for an adventure and a party. Or both.

The program this year is all new but follows the popular format of short, practical lectures on clinically relevant crit care topics, and small group workshops with experts teaching you what's not in the books.

The Intensive Care Network registrar's day is on the Monday, at a massively discounted rate and has some great bread and butter talks. These include talks on fluids, sedation, nutrition, airways, ECMO and advanced ventilation.

On the main program there will be sessions on trauma, microbiology, palliative care and end-of-life situations, paediatrics, coagulation and some panel discussions that mustn't be missed.

The workshops will tackle airways once again, end-of-life discussions, some great kit including the ROTEM and Metabolic Carts, as well as some advanced haemodynamic stations, dialysis and crit care radiology.

Of course the social program will be special, with a Welcome Reception that is for everyone, including kids and partners and the Gala Dinner promises to be infamous once again.

Cairns is a special destination for so many reasons and there are plenty of activities to cater to everyone’s tastes. Whether you want to take the kids to the Wildlife Dome, cruise by catamaran to the paradise that is Green Island or take the cable way up to Kuranda Village over the world heritage rainforest, it’s all doable. We’ve arranged discounted prices for these excursions that you can book on the website.

There are still a few spots left so don’t have any regrets – book today!
