Sun, Sea and the 2012 BACCN Conference.
The BACCN Conference committee is excited to announce the return of the annual conference – our 4th International year. This year's event is entitled, “Going Global: Around the World in 48 Hours. Quality and Safety in Critical Care”.
The 2012 conference, taking place in the cosmopolitan yet quintessential seaside town of Brighton, is focussed towards sharing and ensuring the highest standards that assist to improve patient care. Papers are welcome from across the spectrum of critical care and do not need to be global in nature but do need to fit within the conference theme on quality & safety in critical care and one or more of the core conference strand: Patient Safety, Education, Research & Innovation, Leadership Development or End of Life Care or the two symposiums on Critical Care Research or Paediatrics.
For delegates, an extensive scientific programme focusing on this year’s key themes is being developed, which includes internationally renowned key note speakers, a paediatric symposium, research symposium, an innovative exhibition including a WiFi Lounge and a fabulous chill out zone where you can spend some time relaxing, away from the hustle & bustle of the conference buzz.
We already have three keynote speakers confirmed: Clinical Nurse Specialist, Kathy Vollman (USA), Dr Jos Latour (Netherlands), Helen Reay , ICNARC, (UK) and we are looking forward to welcoming more.
As usual, we are keen to encourage abstract submissions for concurrent oral papers, workshops or ViPER presentations and poster displays to complement the key experts we have already invited to lead the academic programme. BACCN sponsors awards for the best paper, poster, workshop and ViPER. Submission will be open shortly.
This year we are running a ‘Best of British’ theme and our social events commence on Sunday evening, celebrating all that is best about the seaside resort of Brighton on the pier. You will also get your copy of the full conference programme whilst taking the opportunity to look around the pier and take in that fresh sea air!
It only remains for us to urge you to take advantage of the SUPER early booking registration rate, and book your place before 10th February 2012.
Look forward to seeing you in Brighton.
