Unfortunately, in very rare cases due to clinical demand or other unforeseen, unavoidable reason, courses may need to be cancelled. In this instance registrants will be advised urgently and will receive a full refund for registration fees.
The content of this course is directed at (appropriately licensed and trained) medical/nursing practitioners. It represents current information about the provision of emergency care. It is not intended to replace, and should not be construed as, medical advice. Any concerns regarding a medical diagnosis or treatment should be directed to a medical practitioner.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, course dates and conditions of participation for courses with in-person attendance are subject to change based on government advice. This includes (but is not limited to) attendance by those with symptoms of COVID-19, awaiting COVID-19 test results, furloughed from work due to COVID-19, or having travelled overseas or in Australian government identified COVID-19 Hot Spot areas within the last 14 days. If you fit, or are concerned about any of these criteria near your course date, we kindly request you cancel your registration to ensure safety for all. Cancelled registrations can be transferred to an alternative course or held in credit and used any time in the next 24 months. Please be advised that all participants will be required to complete an electronic attestation regarding COVID-19 on arrival at each course date.
Registration refund policy:
- Substitution: If, after booking an event you are unable to attend, you are welcome to nominate someone else to attend in your place. Please advise substitutions via email so a correct name tag will be available at the registration desk. CPD hours will be allocated to the substitute delegate.
- Refunds (non-COVID):
- Cancellation more than 30 days before the event: 70% refund.
- Cancellation less than 30 days before the event: no refund, cancellation must be in writing.
