Program Purpose / Objectives
Topics:
  1. The Blue Baby
  2. The Vomiting Baby
  3. The Crying Infant
  4. Feeding Problems in Toddlers
  5. An Overview of Pediatric Cardiology
  6. Recognizing the Sick Child
  7. Communicating with your patients

  10. Insulin Resistance and Vascular Disease
  11. Peripheral Arterial Disease
  12. Understanding Heart Failure
  13. Heart Failure Management
  14. Venous Incompetence
Learning Objectives:
  1. Following the presentation participants should be able to exclude common and generally benign causes of cyanosis in the newborn, and to consider and confidently diagnose cyanotic heart disease allowing for timely intervention and better outcomes
  2. This session hopes to bring together the common and uncommon causes of vomiting in the young baby thereby allowing for the recognition of those more serious cases warranting admission, and/or medical or surgical intervention.
  3. While all babies cry, those that continuously do so present to the clinician for diagnosis and effective management. The session will highlight the not uncommon causes that may be simply dealt with. It will also describe the complexity of the problem and its management especially if simple interventions have been carried out but with little improvement.
  4. The session brings together the multiple considerations which may lead to feeding problems in the young thereby allowing the participants to more readily achieve early resolution.
  5. Upon completion of the session participants hopefully will be able to recognize the very sick child and to institute appropriate and immediate treatment to ensure the best outcomes.
  6. This interactive session will allow participants to reflect on their own practice with the aim of achieving a therapeutic interview as described by Winnicott.
  7. Following this presentation, participants should have an overall understanding of paediatric cardiology, recognise gaps in their knowledge and be more confident in making appropriate referrals.
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

    Ports of Call
    Airlie Beach, Australia - The town of Airlie Beach, often referred to as the "Gateway To The Whitsundays", radiates a certain bohemian charm, with a blend of cosmopolitan and contemporary Australian style. Facing north on the eastern coast of Australia, Airlie Beach is blessed with late afternoon sun in the winter and cool, refreshing breezes in the summer. The coastal village of Airlie Beach serves as the ideal launching pad to explore the majestic Whitsunday islands, vast areas of untouched natural forests and the idyllic Great Barrier Reef.
    Brisbane, Australia - The cool and casual capital of Queensland offers all the glitz and glam of a big city without the big city airs. Located on the banks of the Brisbane River and surrounded by rolling hills, this urban oasis sure is easy on the eyes. Whether you're headed uptown, downtown or out of town, you'll be sure to encounter your fair share of first-ever experiences. Scale the legendary Story Bridge, take a sandboarding tour on North Stradbroke Island. Or if you'd like to connect with your inner Aussie, try your hand at sheep shearing at the Australian Woolshed.
    Sydney, Australia - The whole world's in love with Sydney. It's stylish, it's sophisticated, it's home to some of the friendliest people on the planet. And yes, a few koalas, if you know where to look. What's not to love? This gateway to the Outback has it all: endless outdoor adventure around the harbor or in spots like the Blue Mountains. Golden sandy beaches named Bondi, Bilgola and Coogee (which are not only beautiful, but also fun to say). A bustling art and entertainment scene. Countless museums, galleries and world-class restaurants where the dishes go way beyond the local Vegemite.
    Willis Island, Australia (Cruising) - Willis Island, located east of Australia just beyond the Great Barrier Reef, is the only permanently inhabited island in Australia's Coral Sea Islands Territory. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has a weather monitoring station on the island, staffed by three people, who make up the island's human population. Thousands of masked, brown and red footed boobies - a seabird that looks like a dressed up seagull - keep them company.

    TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

    Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

    Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

    If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
