Dear Friends, Colleagues and HITH Society Members,

The HITH society and conference committee have made the difficult decision to change to a fully virtual event due to the concerns on being able to hold the event with border restrictions or company guidelines impacting many attendees and key staff being able to attend. The event will be run on a comprehensive platform which is able to deliver streamed sessions with live Q&A, exhibitor information, on-line networking and more. We are confident in being able to deliver a successful virtual event and bring to life the highly informative sessions that have been planned. The ASM will continue to run for 2 days over 11 – 12 November.  

Be assured that there will still be the same line up of excellent speakers and workshops including how HITH Services in Australia and Paris have contributed to the COVID 19 response to care for more patients in their homes during the pandemic.
