ANZCA Virtual ASM : 29 April - 3 May 2022

Welcome from the president and dean

ANZCA President

Dr Vanessa Beavis

A warm welcome back to our 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) . . . in real time, your time, any time. Yes we are virtual!

Firstly, thank you to our irrepressible Perth Regional Organising Committee (ROC) for their perseverance, skill and knowledge in redefining their meeting, keeping you, the delegate at the forefront of everything they have and continue to do, and for never ever giving up.

For the best part of five years, the ROC has strived to deliver an ASM that we can all be proud of and while we will not get to gather together in Perth, as we had all hoped to do, please support this hard working team and get on line and register. We are still having an ASM and as you read through the program you will see just how good it is. Our four day program remains as previously published with so much to engage with and participate in.

Our college displays a strong and united sense of collegiality, support for others and respect for each other. I have seen this time and time again and especially during my time as President, as we have tackled the pandemic and all the issues and demands it has and still presents.

Join me on April 29 through to May 3 and take advantage of this comprehensive and thoughtful educational and scientific meeting and make it one to remember for those that have created it and for each other.

FPM Dean

Associate Professor Michael Vagg

A heartfelt thanks to the convenor, presenters, facilitators and the entire team who have remained positive and focused on delivering our 2022 FPM symposium.

To say that it has required commitment and determination is an understatement, as for the last five years this team has kept adapting, reinventing and recreating their meeting. They have also worked tirelessly on the dedicated pain lecture stream and workshops as part of the 2022 ASM program. We can be very proud of them and their work and how they represent the Faculty.

In 2022, we are virtual once again and after the success of our 2021 Symposium, I have no doubt that you will enjoy both an engaging and educative experience and that the final product will exceed expectations.

I urge all Fellows and trainees of the Faculty to make a special effort to register and attend in a virtual capacity.
