More than 220 emergency and critical care clinicians from across the state will converge on Dubbo this week for the 12th annual Rural Critical Care Conference, being held at the Dubbo RSL Club on the 24th & 25th August.
The conference is presented by the NSW Rural Emergency/Critical Care Clinical Nurse Consultant Planning Group and has ongoing support from NSW Ministry of Health and corporate supporters.
Each year the conference is held in a different region, however Dubbo has been given the hosting rights for a second time, after it held the inaugural RCCC in 2001.
“The RCCC is an important event in keeping rural clinicians abreast of current practices in emergency and critical care, and also gives delegates the opportunity to network with other rural and remote clinicians who experience similar challenges.
“This conference is one of very few that are aimed specifically at rural and remote emergency and critical care clinicians and held in a regional location. It’s fantastic that Dubbo has been successful in hosting the Rural Critical Care Conference for a second time,” said the conference convenor, Meg Tuipulotu.
The two-day program includes presentations on a variety of topics that are of particular interest to rural and remote emergency and critical care clinicians, including sepsis management and cardiac care in indigenous communities.
The conference will allow delegates to share and discuss initiatives, innovations and experiences in providing emergency/critical care services to a diverse population.
Media are invited to speak with delegates at the conference at 10am on Friday 24th August.
