 Tasmanian Annual Scientific Meeting

Saturday February 29 to Sunday March 1, 2020.

What better way to spend next year’s leap day in Hobart than at the Tasmanian combined Annual Scientific Meeting? Enjoy the international, national and local speakers, the weather, the food, the location - all combined with opportunities to socialise and relax.

Put aside these dates in your calendar and LEAP into a scientific program that focuses on
Learning and Excellence in Anaesthesia and Pain.

Saturday is an update in anaesthesia and pain, helping us pursue excellence in our own practice, and that of our trainees. Sunday builds on this by offering several workshops, including accredited emergency response workshops, regional anaesthesia, and giving and receiving feedback. It is an opportunity to share, refresh and expand our knowledge.

In 2020 we are extremely fortunate to have some excellent international, interstate and local speakers including Mount Sinai’s Professor Meg Rosenblatt (ambulatory total joint replacements, first use of lipid rescue) as well as Professor Kirsty Forrest, Dean of Medicine at Bond University, leading sessions on the key skills of communication and feedback, as well as Dr Jennifer Stevens from St Vincent’s in Sydney discussing the case for and against the preoperative opioid wean. With the Saturday finishing with an open microphone panel examining what the future holds.

The meeting will also provide ample opportunities to meet ANZCA continuing professional development requirements.

A cocktail function will again be a highlight and will be held on Saturday evening at The Lounge by Frogmore Creek. Delegates will enjoy drinks and canapes as the sun sets on the Hobart waterfront.
