PAC 2018 Conference

Celebrate the best of APLS at the 2018 PAC Conference.  


PAC 2018 heads to Hobart, Tasmania's creative capital. 

This year we're based at the waterside Wrest Point Hotel with spectacular views, pools and wellness facilities, on-site restaurants and all the 4.5 star comforts you'd expect. 

Enjoy the signature great food and old-world charm of the city, nearby wilderness escapes and the peerless MONA contemporary art gallery. 



Three days of clinical and educational perspectives from across the paediatric acute care spectrum. 

Thursday is dedicated to APLS instructors, with Friday and Saturday open to all.

  • Warm, pink & sweet: controversies in paediatric fluid management
  • It takes a system to save a child
  • Healing thyself: workshops and wellness
  • PREDICT presents: paediatric acute care research highlights
  • Rapid fire updates: resus, sepsis, trauma & education
