ITAC International Forums
With the move to ITAC Virtual in March 2021 the ITAC Organising Committee decided that ITAC should consist of a range of events throughout the year. These International Forum sessions will focus on a particular topic and will be held every 4-6 weeks. The sessions will run for two (2) hours and include access to virtual exhibitors and sponsors. The intention is to use each Forum to explore a specific subject with a strong focus on innovation, technology and improved quality care outcomes.
