Scientific program

We are excited to present an informative and inspirational scientific program for the Perth ANZCA ASM in May 2020 – Inform, inspire, influence. With a strong focus on perioperative and outcome-based medicine, the content of the program aims to positively influence not only anaesthesia and pain medicine providers but the broader medical and patient communities.

We have a strong line up of keynote speakers attending from the US, South Africa, and Europe who will be supported by the highest quality Australasian talent. Hard-hitting scientific plenary topics will tackle subjects including the effect of perioperative medicine on population health, how to positively influence our patients’ lifestyles and optimising the perioperative care of “chronic pain”/ fybromyalgic patients. Topics such as women in anaesthesia research, how artificial intelligence and automation will influence preoperative care and the recognition and impact of bullying in the workplace will be discussed.

On top of that we have a fascinating and diverse range of concurrent sessions, a comprehensive workshop, masterclass and small group discussion program and sessions dedicated to presentation of important and influential research.

We look forward to welcoming you to Perth and providing with you what we hope will be a fantastic ASM.
