International Emergency Care Symposium 4th and 5th Sep 2014 - Registrations open
If we are genuinely passionate about supporting efforts to improve emergency care globally, then we must continually ask: "Can('t) we do better?"
And if we want to do better, then "how can we do better?" And who are the "we" anyway? The 3rd Alfred International Emergency Care Symposium, with its growing band of local and international experts, will seek to debate and answer these essential questions and many others.
