Newsletter - March 2020

“Right Patient, Right Operation, Right Place, Right Time”

Welcome to the Perioperative Medicine (PoM) SIG quarterly newsletter. Our aim is to deliver up-to-date developments and resources for continuing PoM education.

ANZCA Perioperative Medicine project update

Perioperative medicine (PoM) is a key focus for the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA). The practice of PoM is inherently multi-disciplinary, and we believe the only way to achieve widespread and sustainable practice of PoM is via multi-college collaboration. As one of the pillars of the ANZCA 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, the college aims to oversee the development of the formal qualification in PoM. To this end, ANZCA has openly pursued relationships with relevant colleges and interested parties (physicians, geriatricians, surgeons, intensivists, and general practitioners) to come together for the wellbeing of perioperative patients. In recent months, ANZCA has launched a website with PoM content and developed a series of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the proposed PoM qualification. ANZCA will regularly produce a communique to keep you informed of any significant progress in developing the formal qualification in PoM.
