The ASM Call for abstracts is now closed. Authors will be notified in late February if their abstract has been accepted.
ANZCA strongly supports all forms of anaesthesia and pain medicine research. This includes everything from sub-studies of large multicentre research such as the LOLIPOP trial (recently awarded a Medical Research Future Fund grant) to survey research or audits undertaken by trainees in their local hospitals and ANZCA-funded research.
Prospective authors are invited to submit their abstracts for the 2023 ASM in the categories of anaesthesia and pain medicine. In 2023, abstracts can also be submitted for the Obstetric Anaesthesia SIG satellite meeting for the Michael Paech Prize. More information about the Michael Paech Prize, eligibility information and submission guidelines are available on the meeting website. The format for this prize session will be oral presentations.
The Gilbert Brown Prize Session, ANZCA Trainee Academic Prize Session (ANZCA Trainee Research Prize and ANZCA Trainee Quality Improvement Prize), FPM Dean’s Prize and FPM Best Free Paper Award will be oral presentations. A number of electronic posters (ePosters) will also be selected for moderated oral presentations for the ASM Open ePoster Prize and Trainee ePoster Prize sessions.
The regional organising committee will also select a number of the abstracts presented at the 2023 ASM to be considered for publishing as an e-supplement to the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care journal or in the Pain Medicine journal.
Abstract submission guidelines
The ASM abstract submission guidelines, including information about eligibility guidelines for awards and prizes are available online.
