Dear Colleagues,

The Australian College of PeriAnaesthesia Nurses [ACPAN] invites you to attend the 4th International Conference for PeriAnaesthesia Nurses to be held at Luna Park in Sydney, New South Wales. With the conference venue set on beautiful Sydney Harbour, our theme is Tides of Change, with advocacy, education & research being the focus of the conference. There will also be the opportunity to share experiences in the areas of management, evidence-based practice, clinical case studies in anaesthesia, post anaesthesia care, and specialty practice interests such as paediatrics, geriatrics, and surgical specialties.

This will be the first International Collaboration of PeriAanaesthesia Nurses, Inc. (ICPAN) biennial conference to be hosted in the Southern Hemisphere, and we are extremely excited to welcome you to Sydney and to Australia! Come explore the naturally diverse beauty Australia has to offer with glistening beaches, emerald rainforests and the great expanse of the deserts.

November in Sydney is a glorious time of year – summer has sprung with the beautiful sun shining and the magnificent warm weather to keep you comfortable. Sydney has a rich history and culture. We know how to celebrate, show you an amazing time, & then how to relax after it all!

Please look around the website to begin planning your trip to Sydney, and do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney in November 2017!
