Tasmanian Mid Winter Workshop, Josef Chromy Winery, Saturday August 24, 2019

The theme for this year’s Tasmanian ACE Winter meeting explores ageing – considering topics associated with maturing patients as well as an ageing anaesthesia workforce. Delegates can start the day with a breakfast advanced life support (ALS) workshop (ANZCA CPD approved) which will be followed by a dynamic program. Three interstate experts are travelling to Tasmania to share their knowledge and speaking on various aspects of geriatric patient management, including shared decision making (to avoid decisional regret and prevent non-beneficial surgery), and frailty in anaesthesia and ICU. Local experts will also speak on workforce ageing.  A panel discussion around ageing will be a thought provoking highlight to end the scientific program. Pre-dinner drinks and canapes on the deck overlooking the vineyard provides an opportunity for delegates to socialise and wind down after a thought provoking day. This is then followed up by a delicious three-course sit down meal where great food and great conversations will complete a memorable day.

Listed as one of the top 10 cellar doors of Australia, the venue is the stunning Josef Chromy Winery. This vineyard is famous for producing award-winning wines. Superb cuisine prepared from fresh locally-sourced produce will be a highlight. You can also take in exquisite views of the picturesque lake and hillside vineyard.
