ANZCA proudly supports all forms of anaesthesia and pain medicine research. In 2022, ANZCA will be “Emerging” from the challenges of COVID-19 and running an in-person meeting in Perth. Promoting and disseminating important clinical research is an integral part of the meeting, and is supported by ANZCA’s Clinical Trials Network (CTN).
The anaesthesia community in Australia and New Zealand make significant contributions to anaesthesia and pain medicine research worldwide, and we aim to recognise that by showcasing the research work of our fellows at the ASM. Prospective authors are invited to submit their abstracts for the 2022 ASM in the categories of anaesthesia and pain medicine. Accepted authors will be required to present in person as part of the meeting. *If the meeting format requires a change to a virtual delivery authors will be required to present in a virtual capacity. Authors are required to submit their abstract in electronic format. All presentations will be in electronic poster (e-Poster) format except for those selected for oral presentation in the following prize sessions: Gilbert Brown Prize; ANZCA Trainee Research Prize; ANZCA Trainee Quality Improvement Prize; FPM Dean’s Prize; and FPM Best Free Paper.
The regional organising committee will also select a number of the abstracts presented at the 2022 ASM to be considered for publishing as an e-supplement to the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care journal or in the Pain Medicine journal.
For full abstract submission guidelines, including eligibility guidelines for awards and prizes, please click here. Abstract submissions will close at 11.59pm (AEDT), Sunday 16 January 2022.
The scorecard for abstract marking (anaesthesia abstracts only) is now available to prospective authors to review prior to the close of abstracts. Authors are able to review the rubric and make changes to their abstract through the submission portal prior to the close of abstracts on Sunday 16 January, 11.59pm AEDT.
Notification of acceptance will be sent to presenters by email in early March 2022, before close of early-bird registration.
