CCS 2023: Rapid Fire


Critical Care Summit 2023

A brand-new event on the College's conference calendar, Critical Care Summit 2023 was hosted in Tweed Heads in May 2023. The Summit aimed at providing a targeted education and engagement for critical care practitioners including paramedics, nurses and emergency and retrieval physicians.

Through two days of case-based learning, attendees experienced multi-faceted and interactive presentations centred around complex patient care.

Summit theme: Contemporary care through collaboration

Rapid Fire

Undoubtedly, throughout the conference, there will be questions which have not been raised, or quandaries which attendees want to know the answer to. This session will see the summit presenters return to the stage, and each given just 30 seconds to answer questions from the audience.
