    It gives us great pleasure to announce that Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine, supported by Hong Kong Society for Emergency Medicine and Surgery, Hong Kong College of Emergency Nursing and Hong Kong Emergency Nurses Association, will organize a Scientific Symposium on Emergency Medicine (SSEM) on 20 October 2017 at the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine Jockey Club Building, Aberdeen, Hong Kong.

    This annual conference aims to provide a platform for medical experts to exchange views, share experience and gain new insights in the practice of emergency medicine. The theme of the Symposium this year is “Geriatric Emergency Care: Embracing the Challenges”. This symposium will provide a rich programme delivered through plenary sessions and symposia. We have invited renowned speakers from Canada, United Kingdom, Singapore and also gained support from prominent local speakers. We believe that all participants will take advantages and gain a lot from the informative scientific sessions, and patients will definitely benefit from the fruitful discussions.

    Last but not the least, we wish you all a wonderful and rewarding experience. Welcome again, and look forward to greeting you in person at the conference venue.
