Whose line is it anyway?

The Intensive Care Foundation and AVATAR are pleased to present
our second collaborative seminar on 26 March 2018

Glass Viewing room at Queensland Cricketers' Club

411 Vulture Street, The Gabba, Woollongabba

Intensive care patients are cared for by a multi-disciplinary team, each of whom have distinct and important contributions to the complex journey, taking the patient from critically ill through to discharge.
Along this journey, patients will have multiple vascular access devices and each of these clinicians will perceive this device through a different clinical lens. This seminar will challenge participants to reflect on these alternate perspectives and challenge them to broaden clinical decision making around VADs.
