New Zealand (NZ) Sepsis Conference 2021 is organized by Outshine Ltd and will be held from Nov 18 - 20, 2021 at Novotel Rotorua Lakeside, Rotorua, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
They 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, featuring a range of local and international keynote speakers, and parallel sessions which will include ASID-specific topics. They look forward to engaging with the wider medical community on this important topic.
The conference programme and our keynote speakers will cover a broad range of topics, spanning from clinical updates and controversies (e.g. antibiotic stewardship, diagnostics, resuscitation, sepsis management in special populations) to systems and population health (quality improvement, health inequity, surveillance data).
Sepsis (a life-threatening syndrome of organ failure caused by a dysregulated immune response to infection) is a topic of growing national and international importance. It is responsible for more deaths than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined. Its management touches every part of the healthcare system, testing clinical acumen, hospital diagnostic capability, antimicrobial prescribing policy and the capacity to offer continuing support for survivors. Sepsis is more frequent amongst Maaori and Pacific people, linking it to increasingly urgent efforts to demonstrate equity in health outcomes and access.
Our chosen destination, Rotorua, has something for everyone - Culture, adventure, nature, excitement, relaxation, cuisine - whatever you enjoy! Feel the manaakitanga (hospitality) of the Te Arawa people. The conference venue and planned social programme will also provide plenty of opportunities for networking and robust discussion.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
