Why you should attend!

Mass casualty session with the team at CareFlight
More and more mass casualty situations are arising and are a very pointed reminder of the necessity to be prepared. How do you manage a situation with limited resources, what everyday items can help save lives? Using simulation based scenarios, the CareFlight retrieval team will bring the hospital to people who cannot wait to get there for life saving care. This interactive session should not be missed and more information will be available soon.
UK based consultant anaesthetist Dr Rosel Tallach has confirmed!
A specialist in trauma, regional and simulation training Dr Tallach will share her experiences in the aftermath of London’s recent spate of mass casualty incidents. Sharing experiences in light of the recent Christchurch attack is a sobering reminder about why we need to maintain a level of readiness not only in our work place but the wider community.


Located in the heart of Darling Harbour, the sparkling new and environmentally sensitive International Convention Centre (ICC) will play host for the 2019 Trauma and ACCUTE SIG meeting. The ICC features state of the art facilities, beautiful contemporary design, and spectacular views of Darling Harbour with the cityscape beyond.
