Sponsors & Exhibitors
The conference is the premier event for Emergency Nursing in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Supporting the meeting will provide your organisation with a number of key benefits.
The conference theme ‘Showcasing the Best of Emergency Care’ aims to share the current knowledge, ideas and developments in emergency care. The call for abstracts closes strictly at midnight 13th June.
Invitation to attend
The conference committee extend a warm welcome to all emergency nurses to attend the 16th International Conference for Emergency Nurses (ICEN) for the College of Emergency Nursing Australasia (CENA) to be held from 10th – 12th October 2018 in Melbourne at the Pullman, Albert Park.
Emergency services globally are under increasing pressures. Implementing safe, quality care has become more complex in an often chaotic environment. There is often limited time and opportunity to reflect on the care delivered and share our lessons learnt with others. We therefore invite you to join us at the International Conference for Emergency Nurses where we will ‘Showcase the Best of Emergency Care’. This conference will provide a platform for emergency clinicians to share, learn and collaborate, to improve emergency care for everyone.
We look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to the 16th International Conference for Emergency Nurses.
