NZ Sepsis Conference 2021: Challenges for New Zealand
Lakeside Novotel Hotel, Rotorua, New Zealand
November 18-20 2021.
The conference is a combined meeting between Sepsis Trust New Zealand and Australasian Society for Infectious Disease (ASID). We invite and encourage attendance from all healthcare professionals with an interest in the management of sepsis and infectious diseases from across the Australasian region. This will be a forum to review, discuss and even shape the optimal approach to the prevention, diagnosis and management of sepsis in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The conference will include plenary sessions, with local and international keynote speakers, and parallel sessions which will include ASID-specific topics.
The committee would very much appreciate your assistance in promoting the conference to your staff and members and other interested parties, via your online events listing or via organisation e-communications. We would be very happy to offer reciprocal advertising for your events and organisation on the conference website www.sepsis.org.nz/conference/ and I look forward to receiving these details in due course and your confirmation that you are happy to assist with this request.
Please feel free to share the website link with your colleagues: www.sepsis.org.nz/conference/
