ANNUAL Global Emergency
Care Conference

Global emergency care education

The Global Emergency Care Conference is an annual event designed to equip emergency care providers with the skills, resources and networks to become involved in the development of global emergency care, particularly in resource-limited settings.

The Conference brings together all types of clinicians and practitioners including nurses, doctors, paramedics, allied health clinicians, researchers, development specialists, educators and health administrators. Join us to learn more about global emergency care opportunities, and the experiences of experts in the field.

The theme for 2022: From recovery to resilience: strengthening emergency care systems in the wake of disaster.
Emergency care systems often come under strain during disasters, and the recovery phase provides an opportunity to reflect on lessons learned. This year’s Global Emergency Care Symposium will consider how disasters can lead to strengthened capacity for both routine emergency care and surge events. Emergency clinicians and global health practitioners from around the world are encouraged to participate in the discussion. We will explore case studies from a variety of low- and middle-income countries, and consider how the COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity to build resilience in global emergency care systems.
