Associate Professor Peter Kas

Associate Professor Peter Kas is the Convenor of the EMCORE Conferences. His first EMCORE was put together as 'Resus 2010' and it has taken off from there. He conceived and built the now very popular resus.com.au as a means of writing about the common every day cases we see in the emergency department and disseminating that education in a free and interactive fashion. That was back in 2010. The website now has thousands of subscribers.
In terms of Clinical Medicine, Peter has worked in two of the largest Tertiary centres in the country and has now taken the position of Director of Emergency Medical Training at Bundaberg. He believes strongly that the care that we in the emergency department deliver in the rural and regional sector, should be of the same calibre as the largest teaching department. He believes strongly in education and teaches extensively.
With his first book based on his popular 'ECG in 20 Seconds' approach, about to be released, a new Resus website and several other books and conferences on the horizon, he likes nothing more than exploring the coffee shops of Melbourne and enjoying a good brew.

Dr Luke Lawton

Luke Lawton is an emergency and retrieval physician. He works in Townsville, where he is the Director of Emergency Medicine for Australia’s northernmost tertiary hospital. In general, Luke thinks emergency medicine is pretty interesting, but his specific interests include prehospital and retrieval medicine, system redesign and education. In fact, Luke has a long history of telling the worst “dad jokes” at EMCORE. He is the author of Own the ABG as well as a number of peer reviewed publications in international journals, and he is also the national director in Australia for the HALT-IT trial. When he’s not doing all that, Luke likes taking his 2 year old son for ice cream at the beach.
