HREM 2020 has been postponed

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, we regret to inform you that the High Risk Emergency Medicine Meeting Australia 2020 will be postponed to May 2021 as a result of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Organising Committee has not taken this decision lightly but it has become evident with the evolving situation that the meeting will not take place this year. We are facing an unprecedented challenge and as Emergency care providers we are at the frontline of this crisis. Our attention and focus must be on the unfolding events and we hope that you are resilient in whatever role you play. 

The Organising Committee remain committed to delivering a high-quality meeting next year. We are currently working to quickly identify a new date within May 2021 for the event, which will be announced shortly.

In the meantime, if you have any queries please contact the Meeting Organisers at hremaustralia@arinex.com.au

Kind regards,
Local Organising Committee

Welcome to the High Risk Emergency Medicine Meeting Australia 2020

 The organising committee welcomes you to the inaugural High Risk Emergency Medicine Meeting in Australia. This meeting will focus on situations and presentations that, due to the risk of misdiagnosis or misadventure, present the greatest risk to the Emergency patient and the greatest anxiety to the Emergency clinician. This meeting is designed for practising emergency doctors and nurses, EM trainees and Diploma candidates as well CMOs, urgent care clinicians and GPs who encounter high risk conditions in their medical practice.

We will focus on clinical scenarios that carry a risk of delayed or missed diagnosis and will address the potential consequences for the clinician such as RCAs, litigation, coronial investigations and disciplinary action. The meeting aims to improve clinical competence in diagnosis and treatment of high risk conditions as well as instruct in strategies to avoid the ramifications of these adverse events. Topics to be covered include high risk cardiovascular, infectious, neurological, paediatric, geriatric, and toxicology emergencies among others. In addition, we will examine the medicolegal issues that are inherent to the practice of emergency medicine, such as consent, involuntary treatment and end of life controversies. Organised by a local faculty with nationally acclaimed speakers, both who have expertise in medicine and law. This meeting will use real case scenarios to educate clinicians in dealing with High Risk Emergency Medicine.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr Susan Hertzberg
Chair, Local Organising Committee, High Risk Emergency Meeting 2020
