Emergency Care Symposium 2011

On the 4 November 2011, the ECI held the inaugural NSW Emergency Symposium that featured the launch of the ECI. The Hon Jillian Skinner (Minister for Health and Medical Research) and Dr Mary Foley (NSW Health Director General) attended this special occasion.

The ECI sought feedback from our stakeholders as part of the ECI questionnaire that was distributed in July 2011 to advise what they would like included in the program. This information was used to inform the program on the day.
