The annual Leura Critical Care Echo Meeting is the only one in Australia that provides a venue for both critical care physicians, echocardiographers, educators and researchers to come together to learn and to share their echo knowledge and experience. The Meeting is held in the picturesque Leura in the Blue Mountain, an area that is surrounded by gardens and walks. Archeological evidence suggest the region might be inhabited by the Dharug people more than 12,000 years ago.
The Leura Meeting is a fertile ground for interactions between trainees and experts (both national and international) in the area of critical care echo. Two courses are normally run in the Meeting: the RACEplus and Advanced Critical Care Echo. The RACEplus is a highly applauded workshop and is accredited by ASUM and various Colleges for accreditation purpose. The Advanced Critical Care Echo is a Forum where advanced knowledge and techniques are shared. If you got an appetite for advanced topics, such as strain measurements, the Forum is for you.
