We invite you to the Winter Symposium in Newcastle, on the traditional country of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples.
The theme of the Symposium is Transitioning the coalface. The last couple of years have been a rollercoaster ride with climate change and the pandemic. The climate at the coalface in ED needs to transition, it needs to cool down.
The Symposium will create a space to discuss, reflect and introspect on this transition, with the aim to generate ideas from lived experience and improve the future practice of emergency medicine. The scientific program will provide expert workshops on toxicology, resuscitation, and paediatrics. Concurrent sessions will showcase the works of emergency researchers and focus on delivering high value scientific content. All of this while catching up and sharing ideas with colleagues from around Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond.
Newcastle, the largest coal exporting harbour in the world, has faced a significant transition in recent decades, and as such, is the perfect venue to host such an interesting conference topic. Once a blue collar, industrial town, Newcastle now hosts a multicultural, cosmopolitan population.
The beating heart of the Hunter region, Newcastle blends the best of laid-back coastal life with a bustling city of restaurants, events, and nightlife. One of Australia’s best kept secrets, Newcastle has a spectacular panoramic coastline, array of sandy beaches and some of the country’s best surfing spots.
Join us in Newcastle as we explore cutting-edge knowledge, and our future.
See you in Newy!
