RANZCP events

As conference hosts, the RANZCP is very conscious of the emergence of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a global health issue which has the potential to impact our conferences.

The health and safety of conference attendees is our highest priority, and the RANZCP will keep delegates informed with regular updates as further information or advice becomes available.

The RANZCP is monitoring the latest health advice from both the Department of Health (Australia) and the Ministry
of Health (New Zealand), and we ask that all delegates do the same.

During this time, if we are required to make any changes or cancellations to our conferences, delegates will be notified by email and we will offer full refunds. Outside of changes made by us, should you require to cancel your registration, all requests for cancellations must be made in writing and sent to

No administration fees will be charged during this time, however cancellation requests must be made two weeks prior to the event date for a full refund to be issued. No refunds will be issued after this date. Substitute delegates may be accepted. All applications for substitution must be made in writing to the conference office.
