We’re delighted to announce that the 38th CRANAplus Conference will be held at QT in Canberra from Wednesday 14th to Friday 16th October 2020, concluding with a very special dinner event at the National Museum of Australia.  Be sure to add yourself to the mailing list by clicking below to ensure you receive information as planning progresses.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the CRANAplus team, I welcome you to the 38th CRANAplus conference in Australia’s capital city, Canberra.

These are the traditional lands of the Ngunnawal people. The neighbouring people are the Gundungurra to the north, the Ngarigo to the south, the Yuin on the coast, and the Wiradjuri inland. We pay our respects to them as the First Peoples and acknowledge their Elders both past and present.

I hope you get the chance to explore the many cultural sites in and around Australia’s political heartland whilst attending this years conference. CRANAplus promises an inspiring range of presenters which capture our theme of Passion. Purpose. Influence. Impact.

We are proud to host this exciting conference and we look forward to greeting you – clinicians, students, educators, policy makers and health leaders, all of whom contribute to the rich diversity of the rural and remote landscape. I look forward to meeting you personally, please come up and say hello.

Warm regards,
Katherine Isbister RN, RM
Chief Executive Officer, CRANAplus

Venue & Destination

Canberra might be smaller than Sydney to its north and Melbourne to its south, but there’s still plenty to discover. The small town vibe means it’s easy to get around and the locals are eager to share the best of their food, wine, beer and attractions. Within the city limits you’ll find museums, galleries, breweries and modern architecture, but just minutes away lies the quiet nature of mountains, valleys and everything in between. It’s no wonder the locals here love the lifestyle and landscape.
