ICEN 2016

On Behalf of the College of Emergency Nursing Australasia (CENA) I welcome you to the 14th Conference International Conference for Emergency Nurses (ICEN), being held from the 19th to the 21st of October 2016. This is the first time ICEN has been held in the Northern Territory and in a rural location.

Our theme “Emergency Care: Expanding the Horizon" aims to explore the innovation, adaptation and perseverance of delivering emergency care in challenging environments. The ICEN 2016 subthemes include:
  • Access and delivery of emergency care in austere, rural and remote areas;
  • Innovative models of emergency care delivery;
  • Patient focused care delivery in vulnerable population groups.
ICEN 2016 also has a strong social program intended to bring colleagues and friends together to share in the beauty of outback Northern Territory. The conference one million star dinner will be the main feature of the social program giving delegates a very unique experience in Alice Springs.

ICEN 2016 is a rare opportunity to share, learn and come together in one of Australia's most unique environments.
