On behEvan PortraitWebalf of the Organising Committee we wish to welcome and thank you for your interest in attending the inaugural Australian Vascular Access Society’s (AVAS) Annual Scientific Meeting to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, in Brisbane Queensland, Australia 29-30 April 2016.

This is the first dedicated Vascular Access meeting in Australia and will provide an informative, thought-provoking and challenging Scientific Program, delivered by inspirational local and international speakers. There will be keynote and breakout sessions as well as oral and poster abstract sessions. Additionally, there are pre meeting workshops on social media applications for research and teaching, ultrasound guided insertion and infusion therapy challenges. As always, large professional meetings like this also offer invaluable networking opportunities with professional colleagues and industry representatives.

This theme of the meeting will be “Intravascular line savers are life savers” reflecting how essential vascular access is in modern medicine across a range of specialities and disciplines. We invite you to join us for this focused and contemporary discussion of how we deal with the challenges of delivering the best vascular access care and practice for our patients.

We sincerely hope you can join us at this exciting convention and look forward to welcoming you to our 2016 ASM.
