NeuroNICU’s or Neuro-Critical Care Nurseries are strategically appearing all over the world – and it is now critical to unify and standardize nursing care practices. Bedside nurses in the NICU are caring for the most vulnerable organ, the developing newborn brain, every day and continuity of care begins with education.
This NeuroNICU Nurse Training Conference focuses on the four pillars of NeuroNICU Nursing care – neuro-assessment, neuro-monitoring, neuro-development, and neuro-protection. These are key to optimal brain development.
We are finalizing the full agenda but thought we could share a sneak peek with you. Some of our confirmed speaker presentations will include:
}} Staff, family and neonatal trauma in the NICU
}} International update: What’s happening in NICU’s around the globe
}} St. Louis’ SENSE Program and their study results
}} Neurological implications of hypoglycemia
}} Long Term Care & Outcomes: The latest in CP – diagnosis and treatment
}} Review of best practices for post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus
}} Mild HIE – to cool or to cuddle?
}} And so much more!

Welcome to APAO 2019!
The year 2003 was the last time the APAO Congress was held in Bangkok. Many things in science, art, culture, technology and so on have changed considerably since then.
The APAO Congress in 2003 was still in the era when APAO Congresses were held once every two years. It was the most successful APAO Congress ever then with more than 1,200 delegates, more than 300 submitted abstracts and more than 40 exhibitors. It was, however, surpassed very quickly by the following APAO Congresses. Fifteen years later, the latest APAO Congress in Hong Kong had more than 5,000 delegates, more than 1,500 submitted abstracts and more than 250 exhibitors. APAO Congresses have, without a doubt, become a yearly global event in ophthalmology with huge success.
The Royal College of Ophthalmologists of Thailand is proud to be part of the growing APAO. We are honored to be given this great opportunity to host the APAO Congress one more time after more than 15 years. We welcome ophthalmologists and related personnel from all over the world to the “Sciences and Arts of Ophthalmology.” While the growing success of APAO is certainly due to the strength of the scientific programs, friendship, the social part or art of academic meetings, is also slowly built up through APAO Congresses. I believe if APAO council members, speakers and delegates who attend APAO Congresses regularly through the years count the number of new friends they know from the congresses, they will find the number is enormous, or even countless.
The current President of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists of Thailand, Dr. Anuchit Poonyathalang, said in the welcome video for APAO 2019: “When our Thai hospitality meets academic spirit, APAO 2019 will bring the best of sciences and arts that ophthalmology offers.” He is certainly correct.
Let’s bring science, art and also friendship to APAO 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand.
I hope to see you all.
With warmest personal regards,
APAO 2019 Congress President
President, The Royal College of Ophthalmologists of Thailand, 2013-2016
