Invitation to Attend

On behalf of the College of Emergency Nursing Australasia (CENA) I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend the 13th International Conference for Emergency Nursing (ICEN) in Brisbane, Queensland.

ICEN 2015, Emergency Care: Accept the Challenge, Lead the Change, provides an opportunity for clinicians involved in the delivery of emergency care globally, to collaborate, share ideas, challenge practice, and to lead innovative change to enhance quality patient care.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre for ICEN in October 2015.

ICEN 2015 Conference Co-Convenors

Conference Venue

The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre is situated in the South Bank precinct of Brisbane, Queensland. There are a number of hotels directly adjacent and next to the centre.

South Bank is a unique riverside cultural, entertainment and dining precinct, set in lush subtropical riverfront parkland just a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Brisbane is also just a stone’s throw from the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, both of which are well known for their beautiful surfing beaches and majestic hinterland regions.
