Purpose of Program: The purpose of this seminar is to provide nurses with the current evidence and underpinning principles of best-practice nursing management for people with physical trauma. Learning Outcomes: • Correlate the pathophysiology and “mechanism of injury” to underpinning principles of trauma management as it relates to immediate, emergency, and ward care • Provide evidence-based trauma nursing care within the context of the location of your practice and the resources available • Develop and extend primary assessment skills for a wide range of scenarios to improve short- and long-term patient outcomes • Confidently prioritise nursing actions when a complex range of trauma situations occur

(PHAA) and will be held from Jun 29 - Jul 01, 2021 at Perth Convention And Exhibition Centre, Perth, Western Australia, Australia. Target Audience: The conference will aim to facilitate conversations on improving the effectiveness and efficiencies of immunization through knowledge sharing and relationship building.

The theme has been established to shine a light on the challenges and exciting opportunities that exist to ensure the benefits of life-saving immunisation can be optimised. As articulated under the global Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG3, immunisation contributes to ensuring healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages. Although Australia has one of the most comprehensive immunisation programs of any country worldwide, there continues to be gaps in access and uptake of life-saving vaccines. As more vaccines become available for use across the life course, protecting pregnant women and their newborns through to the elderly, and in a targeted way for groups with specific disease risk factors, it is critical that we apply principals of equity to our policies and programs. More than ever, new technologies, available but not yet utilised data and new vaccines and delivery methods offer the promise of reaching more people to prevent serious new and old diseases. This conference will provide a dynamic and engaging forum to discuss all the latest developments in immunisation. 2021 heralds a new and exciting decade of opportunity in preventative health care, of which immunization is a flagship. The program will include keynote presentations and selected long, short and table top abstract presentations.
