On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society and the International Society for Rapid Response Systems it is with great pleasure I invite you to the 12th International Conference on Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams.
This is the largest international conference supporting rapid response systems across the globe. The Organising Committee for this years conference have developed a thought provoking and challenging scientific program delivered by inspirational global and local speakers. We have expanded the scope of the conference beyond Rapid Response Systems to the broader concept of deteriorating patients. In addition, the program will explore innovative ways to detect and respond to all deteriorating patients including the emergency department, mental health, obstetric, paediatric and general wards. There will be a strong emphasis on technology, team training and improving processes of care.
The Conference will be held at the world class Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre which is ideally situated close the heart of Melbourne on the banks of the iconic Yarra River. Melbourne is Australia’s leader in arts, sports, fashion and has some of the finest restaurants in the country.
I would like to acknowledge the support of the Organising Committee and the health care industry, whose contributions will make this a successful conference. I look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Melbourne and the 2016 IRRS Conference.
