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.
Following the announcement that the ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) will proceed as a virtual event, authors accepted for moderated prize sessions will now be required to pre-record their presentation then join live virtually on the day for Q&A.
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 Award.
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.
