27-28 JULY 2018

Following on from the enormous success of our 25th Anniversary SWAN conference, it is with great pleasure that we welcome you to SWAN 2018  being held in the heart of beautiful Sydney in the CBD. We will again have a stellar line up of international speakers, this time from the USA, South Africa, Norway, New Zealand and Canada. Joining them will be our own well respected national experts in trauma care.

This conference is seen as the premier Australian Trauma, Surgical Critical Care and Emergency Surgery annual meeting. SWAN 2018 again promises to be outstanding with a great mix of lectures, debates, interactive case scenarios, key note speeches and Q and A sessions.

This conference will showcase the latest in emergency surgery and trauma care. We will have a broad range of topics presented in a program that focuses on difficult operative scenarios, critical decision making, controversial issues and pitfalls of common and not so common surgical presentations and expert tips to manage these. 

We really look forward to seeing you at SWAN 2018 for a superb two days of education, entertainment, inspiration and innovation. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to be up to date and to learn from the experts as well as to network with other colleagues.
