TasmaniaThe ANZICS/ACCCN Intensive Care Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) which incorporates the annual Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Conference will be held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, 17-19 October 2013. For those of us associated with Critical Care Medicine and Nursing practice we know it can be both a challenging and rewarding experience. As practitioners we are involved in making life and death decisions often on the run and at times it can feel like we are walking on the somewhat 'risky' wildside of life.

An exciting, diverse and challenging scientific program has been put together, and several outstanding international speakers have already been secured. In the tradition of ANZICS/ACCCN hospitality, the social program will be one to remember.

As always our industry partners accompany us on this exciting journey and as conference hosts we welcome sponsors and delegates to our beautiful island state to revisit or experience for the first time aspects of those wild adventures into striving to attain better patient outcomes.

We invite you to join us in Tasmania, where you will experience an ambitious scientific meeting combined with a vibrant social program showcasing the best of Hobart.
