4th Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care

10-12 November 2022 | Gothenburg, Sweden

Conference postponed to 2022

It is with an element of sadness that we announce our decision to postpone the 4th Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care until 2022 in the same venue in Gothenburg.

Given the current unprecedented challenges we do not think it would be responsible or advisable to continue with our original plans to hold the conference this year.

We want to acknowledge and thank you, our colleagues, for the extraordinary lengths you have gone to provide care in emergency departments and the pre-hospital settings under what undoubtedly has and continues to be the greatest challenge in any of our careers. Many of you, as have we, been touched personally by tragedy and sadness during this time. We have been encouraged and indeed very proud of the extraordinary professionalism and compassion demonstrated by our global emergency care community. Thank you.

In light of the huge success of the three previous conferences and the considerable interest in this year's conference, we look forward to welcoming you to the rescheduled 4th Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care in 2022.

Please join our mailing list to receive information on our new dates.

The ever-increasing demand for emergency care is a global phenomenon. Nurses and paramedics across the world face differing but significant challenges in delivering timely emergency care.

Emergency care is becoming increasingly complex, not only in relation to the outcome of new technologies and medicine, but also in caring for an increasingly ageing population, many with long term conditions and social care needs. This complexity of delivering care requires practitioners who can respond with an equivalent complex skill set, underpinned by an advanced knowledge base as well as the core caring skills that are inherently nursing. This conference will offer a unique opportunity for nurses, paramedics and trauma care professionals from around the world to network and share innovative ideas and practices designed to optimise patient care. The conference will attract delegates from numerous countries worldwide which will enrich the context allowing sharing with, and learning from, each other.

There will be a large number of presentations throughout the three-day event, including keynote presentations, oral and poster presentations, giving delegates the opportunity to hear not only the latest research or innovation in emergency care in a myriad of different settings but also to participate fully in an interactive program.  There will also be an opportunity to attend a pre-conference writing for publication workshop, allowing the participants to engage in a more structured learning and working environment targeted towards getting your research published.

The conference experience is for anyone involved in the delivery, development and organisation of emergency nursing, trauma care and paramedical sciences.
