Dear colleagues and friends,

It gives me great pleasure, as the ANZICS Organising Chair, to extend an invitation to join us at the Asia Pacific Intensive Care Symposium in Singapore in August 2023. Brought to you by SICM and ANZICS, APICS has established itself as the premier platform for critical care professionals, researchers, and educators from the Asia Pacific region and beyond to share their knowledge and experiences.

The current global situation has highlighted the importance of intensive care, and the challenges faced by critical care providers in the Asia Pacific region. APICS will serve as a reminder of these challenges and will focus on the need for a collaborative approach to address them.

We are excited to offer a high-quality scientific program, featuring pre-conference workshops, lectures, and interactive discussion forums. The program will highlight cutting-edge research, technological advancements, and innovative quality and education strategies aimed at improving patient outcomes for adults and paediatric critically ill patients alike. Additionally, we will explore methods to improve staff wellbeing, sustainability, and teamwork.

Finally, APICS 2023 will continue its mission of addressing global health challenges and opportunities relevant to critical care.

I encourage you all to actively engage in the conference, share insights and experiences, and learn from one another. Together, let us advance the field of intensive care and make a difference in the lives of those we care for.

Once again, welcome to APICS 2023 and I look forward to an engaging, inspiring and memorable conference.



Dr Christian Karcher
ANZICS Organising Chair
