Event Overview
Welcome message:

On behalf of the organising committee I am pleased and excited to invite you to the 75th National Scientific Congress (NSC) of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA). The congress is being held in the impressive Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on the Southbank of the Yarra River right in the heart of Melbourne from Saturday 17th to Tuesday 20th September 2016.

We have an excellent scientific program planned including refresher courses, lectures, input from the SIG’s, research and poster sessions, workshops and problem based learning activities. There will be an opportunity for the Health Care Industry to run some industry supported lunch time sessions as well.

Professor Colin Royse is developing a stimulating program involving our invited speakers; Mrs Carolyn Canfield (Canada’s 2014 patient safety champion ) an expert in patient advocacy and also our Kester Brown Lecturer, Dr David Canty from the Royal Melbourne Hospital is our Australiasian visitor and an expert in point of care echocardiograpy, Professor Olle Ljungqvist Professor of Surgery at Örebro University Hospital chairman of the ERAS Society and an expert in Enhanced Recovery after Surgery and Professor Stanton Newman Dean School of Health Sciences at City University in London and an expert on the impact of surgery and other treatments on the brain.

To compliment the high calibre scientific program which we have come to expect from the ASA NSC there will be prestigious and entertaining social functions presented against the backdrop of Melbourne one of the world’s most livable cities. Included in the social program will be a family orientated cocktail party at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image on Saturday night and the Health Care Industry function for delegates Sunday evening. Both evenings will give delegates a chance to mingle but with time enough afterwards to allow a nightcap of further dining at one of the many nearby restaurants and bars. Keep tuned to the website to find the latest details in restaurants and entertainment precincts in Melbourne.

The Gala Dinner on Monday night will be held at Melbourne Park one of the world’s most important tennis venues and banquet areas. It will have a diamond theme to highlight that this is the 75th diamond jubilee since the 1st ASA Scientific Meeting in 1935 (Also held in Melbourne).

We have a great committee of extremely experienced members who have been extensively involved in education and conference organization during their careers in anaesthesia. These include our Scientific Convener Professor Colin Royse, the convener from the 2010 meeting (Dr. Renald Portelli) and the convener from the 2003 meeting in Melbourne (Dr. Mark Sandford) along with other members who were on these committees plus some new talented additions. We are ably supported by International Conference and Events (ICE) (Ms Peta Freeman) and the team at ASA headquarters in Sydney.

Spring in Melbourne is a lovely time to visit with lots of extra activities to encourage you to come earlier or stay longer and enjoy what our city has to offer. And of course it’s a great place for a family holiday. I look forward to meeting many of you in Melbourne and encourage you to commit to coming to Melbourne where we are sure to have an exciting and interesting educational meeting.
