FOR LOCAT K C I ION CL

www.sasacongress.com SASA has established a Wellness Team who is driving the focus within the profession on the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of our profession. This remains a priority as our members face tremendous pressures in their day to day lives and the impact is being felt by all. We have all lost colleagues, even just this year, due to some of these pressures. In support of these initiatives and in alignment with our objectives, Discovery has sponsored a new Award, recognising an individual or team contributing to the wellness of the profession. Although the inaugural award will be made at the Gala Dinner of Congress 2018, this is not a prize awarded for activities at the Congress specifically, but for actions in the year leading up to the Congress.

Welcome

to Durban for the annual National CCSSA Conference, at which SASPEN will again be partnering with us. Durban was voted the top South African City with the highest quality of life for three consecutive years. It provides the ideal venue for this year’s conference that promises to be fresh and innovative in its approach, with greater delegate participation, sharing of ideas, and of course a large dose of fun. The relationship with SASPEN continues to flourish and will bring an exciting edge to the program. New workshops run before the main conference program, innovative lunchtime events, exciting activities in the exhibition hall and a superb SASPEN

social programme will add new elements to this year’s meeting. “Critical Care – let’s make it personal” is this year’s theme and will focus on the importance of individualised and personalized care in ICU. An exceptional international and local speaker faculty will provide their expertise and enthusiasm in highlighting these subjects, with the objective of changing practice, bringing new ideas to the fore, and improving our individual practice. All this will take place against the backdrop of a large trade exhibition. We look forward to seeing you in Durban, joining in the workshops, debates, panel discussions, and all the fun events planned for a memorable week in August 2018. Rob Wise & Dean Gopalan Conference Co-Chairs.
