Community Emergency Medicine Conference

The 1st Community Emergency Medicine Conference is a one day meeting for clinicians and managers that are interested in responding collaboratively to the challenges across the Urgent and Emergency care sector that have resulted from high system demand, increasing clinical and social complexity, and a challenged emergency workforce.
