Abstract: Rapid Response Teams (RRTs) have been introduced into hospitals worldwide in an effort to improve the outcomes of deteriorating hospitalised patients. Recently, there has been increased awareness of the need to develop systems other than RRTs for deteriorating patients. In May 2016, the 12th International Conference on Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams was held in Melbourne. This represented a collaboration between the newly constituted International Society for Rapid Response Systems (iSRRS) and the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society. The conference program included broad ranging presentations related to general clinical deterioration in the acute care setting, as well as deterioration in the emergency department, during pregnancy, in the paediatric setting, and deterioration in mental health status. This article briefly summarises the key features of the conference, links to presentations, and the 18 abstracts of the accepted free papers.
