Dear Delegate

On behalf of the Egoli Branch of the CCSSA, I would like to extend a warm welcome to the 2018 CCSSA Refresher Course which will be held on the 24th & 25th November at Misty Hills Hotel and Conference Centre.

The theme for our meeting is “Getting to the core of critical care” and we have an exciting programme planned which is certain to both inform and entertain. As the field of critical care expands into new exciting areas, it seems a good idea to revisit or “refresh” the fundamentals or ”core” concepts of this incredible field to strengthen the foundation upon which we explore these novel discoveries.

We are particularly honoured to have put together an incredible faculty of critical care practitioners from South Africa and abroad including Professsor Andreas Schibler and Dr Xose Perez.

The strength of critical care comes from the framework of collaboration within which practitioners from various disciplines come together for the benefit of critically ill patients. Our programme is guaranteed to provide perspectives from all the relevant disciplines both in the form of short focussed lectures and small volume, hands-on workshops facilitated by key opinion leaders in the field.

We are looking forward to a memorable two days at the Misty Hills Hotel in Muldersdrift, just outside Johannesburg, which is conveniently situated, a mere 15-minute drive from The Lanseria International Airport. Accommodation is available at the venue for our out of town guests.

Thank you for joining us on our journey to the core of critical care.

Yours sincerely,
Kuban Naidoo
Chairperson of Egoli Branch
