Invitation from the president and dean

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 2019 ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) and
the FPM Annual Pain Medicine Symposium (formerly the Refresher Course Day) in Kuala Lumpur.
The meeting will be co-badged with the Royal College of Anaesthetists (UK), The College of
Anaesthesiologists of Ireland and the College of Anaesthesiologists, Academy of Medicine Malaysia.

The theme of the meeting “New Worlds. Come Explore”, encourages delegates to explore the new
worlds/frontiers faced by anaesthetists and specialist pain medicine physicians.

We are indebted to the convenors and their organising committees, who have worked hard to develop
a dynamic and engaging scientific program. Thank you in advance to all contributors; we are most
appreciative of the time and planning that goes into all presentations, masterclasses, small group
discussions and workshops.

In keeping with the broad theme of “New Worlds. Come Explore” the Faculty of Pain Medicine has
developed an enlightening program for the Annual Pain Medicine Symposium, “Pain at the interface”,
to be held on Sunday April 28 at the same venue.

Come explore the multicultural paradise of Kuala Lumpur. Delegates will be spoilt for choice with the
multitude of dining and cultural experiences on offer and conveniently located to the Kuala Lumpur
Convention Centre (KLCC).

We look forward to welcoming you to Kuala Lumpur, for the 2019 ANZCA ASM.

ANZCA PRESIDENT

DR RODNEY MITCHELL
