The ANZNN Clinical Practice Improvement Conference (CPI2024) is back in 2024 after the success of last year's conference. The conference will bring together nursing, medical and allied health professionals from across the ANZNN member network to share knowledge and foster collaboration for clinical practice improvement within neonatal units. Founded in 2016, the conference attracts delegates from every member unit as well as local and international guest speakers. Each year we aim to build on previous clinical practice outcomes and set new and ambitious targets to improve the quality and safety of newborn care within our neonatal units!

To encourage nursing and allied health attendance and participation we have again discounted the conference fees, accommodation and travel for a number of eligible sponsored delegates per member unit. Nomination of sponsored delegates must be provided by Directors of ANZNN member units only.

Delegates will meet at the Manly Pacific overlooking beautiful Manly Beach. ANZNN CPI2024 will be structured over two days. Day 1 will feature international and local guest speakers who will each conclude with a Q& A session as well as abstract presentations from member units. This year, for the first time, we will provide a program that runs concurrent plenary sessions so delegates can tailor their conference experience to their subject areas of interest. The conference dinner will be a chance to relax, network and reconnect with colleagues. Day 2 will feature an interactive program with eight breakout groups split across two sessions, meaning each delegate will be able to attend two breakout sessions (a new format taking into consideration previous feedback). Each breakout session will focus on a priority subject area for NICU clinical practice improvement. Interactive lunch time poster sessions will also be included during the two-day program. Throughout the two days we hope delegates will examine evidence and discuss implementation strategies at the bedside.

Save the dates Sunday 20th to Tuesday 22nd October 2024, and we look forward to seeing you here! Please contact us at for more information.
