ASDP Annual Conference

Embracing Complexity: Finding Simplicity

The Australasian Society for Developmental Paediatrics invites you to attend the 2024 Annual Conference at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort on the Gold Coast, QLD.

Child development paediatricians deal with complexity every day. Each consultation is underpinned by the intricate and interconnected processes of the child, their family and the community…and is constrained by available time and resources.

Our children and families all have unique needs and circumstances, so we cannot adopt a position of ‘one-size fits all’. We have to be more creative and generate innovative solutions through experimentation and adaptation.

Complexity doesn't need managing; it needs a dance partner.
(Anna Martin)

The Conference will explore new ways to approach complex situations and how to find simplicity within a complex realm of child development, while still maintaining scientific rigor and including the empathy, compassion and adaptability of approach each child deserves.

The art of simplicity is a puzzle of complexity.
(Douglas Horton)

This in-person only event will be held on 22 – 24 August 2024 at the Sheraton Grand Mirage on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

The Conference is the perfect opportunity to share your experiences, develop networks and mix socially with the best practitioners of neurodevelopmental and behavioural paediatric medicine…all in a beautiful and relaxing environment.

Sessions will be recorded for viewing after the Conference but the value of collective thinking and sharing of professional experience is not to be missed.
