The Cairns Congresses will for the first time host 8 sub-specialty meetings (previously referred to as Incorporated Satellites) within the Congress. They will take place as parallel sessions on Monday, 22 June and Tuesday, 23 June.

These will include:

  • Paediatric Cardiac Intervention (organised jointly with PICS, Sun 21 - Tues 23)
  • Paediatric Electro-physiology & Cardiac Arrhythmias
  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease (GUCHD) (organized jointly with ISACHD)
  • Imaging, including MRI as well as Echocardiography and Fetal Echo
  • Paediatric Cardiac Nursing
  • Paediatric Cardiac Intensive Care/Anaesthesia/Perfusion (organised jointly with PCICS)
  • Surgical (organised jointly with WSPCHS as the 2nd meeting of that society)
  • Paediatric Cardiomyopathy/Transplant/Pulmonary Hypertension

There will be 10 multi disciplinary "focus" sessions, each taking half a day, with up to 4 parallel sessions. Each such session will include contributions from different specialty groups, selected free abstracts and, in some cases, an invited lecture. Additional "free abstract" sessions will be programmed alongside these sessions.

Future e.Newsletters will profile these important multi disciplinary sessions including announcements on key speakers and program details.

Trainee "master classes" will also occur daily throughout the meeting and will be structured to provide an educational introduction relevant to the "focus" sessions programmed for the following day.
