INTRODUCTION

The ANZNN Clinical Practice Improvement Conference (CPI2022) is back in 2022 after a two year break due to COVID-19. CPI2022 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 intensive care units (NICUs). Founded in 2016, the conference attracts delegates from every member unit as well as local and international guest speakers. This 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 and accommodation for a number of sponsored delegates per member unit. Nomination of sponsored delegates must be provided by ANZNN Directors only.

CPI2022 is a "semi-open" conference. This means that attendance will be open to delegates from ANZNN member units only, but unlike previous years general attendance (other than Sponsored Delegates) will not need to be by nomination.

Delegates will meet at the Manly Pacific overlooking beautiful Manly Beach, recently named Australia's No. 1 beach in TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards. CPI2022 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. The conference dinner will be a chance to relax, network and reconnect with colleagues. Day 2 will feature an interactive program with six breakout sessions, with each breakout session focusing on a priority subject area for NICU clinical practice improvement. Interactive 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 11th to Tuesday 13th September 2022, and we look forward to seeing you here! Please contact us at anznn@unsw.edu.au for more information.
