The ever increasing demand for emergency care is a global phenonomena. Nurses in both the developed and developing world face differing but significant challenges in delivering timely emergency care.

Emergency care is becoming increasingly complex, not only in relation to the outcome of new technologies and medicine, but also to that which is needed for an increasingly ageing population, many with long term health and social care needs. This complexity of care delivery requires practitioners who are able to respond with an equivalent complex skill set, underpinned by an advanced knowledge base as well as the core caring skills that are inherently nursing. This conference will offer a unique opportunity for health professionals from around the world to network and share innovative ideas and practices designed to improve the care we offer our patients. The conferences will attract worldwide delegates which will enrich the context allowing networking, sharing, and learning from, each other.

There will be a large number of presentations throughout the three day event, including Keynote presentations, oral and poster presentations, symposia and workshops, giving delegates the opportunity to hear not only the latest research or innovation in emergency nursing in a myriad of different settings but also to participate fully in an interactive programme. There will also be an opportunity to attend post-conference workshops /symposia adding further opportunities to engage in a more structured learning and working experience led by experienced clinicians from various fields of practice.
