Event Overview
Welcome message:

We are delighted to invite you to Singapore for the combined Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) Annual Scientific Congress (ASC) and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM). This innovative meeting will explore the important theme ‘Working together for our patients’. The convenors and the organising committees have developed a remarkable scientific program to engage and involve you.

The organising committees from both Colleges have embraced the opportunity to work collaboratively to develop a meeting which allows surgeons, anaesthetists, pain medicine physicians and trainees to join together for both the academic and social programs, ensuring the 2014 ASM and ASC will be memorable meetings for all who attend.

The program includes joint plenaries, sessions of interest for both surgeons and anaesthetists, as well as over 40 joint concurrent sessions across both programs, many with participants from both Colleges, and the Faculty of Pain Medicine sharing their insights into clinical problems affecting all groups. The program will be enriched by leading speakers from Asia, Eurpore, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Hosted at an iconic Singapore venue, the Sands Expo and Convention Center, delegates will experience the highest level of Asian hospitality and appreciate the cosmopolitan atmosphere of this vibrant multicultural city. An impressive social program will be an opportunity for us to meet more informally as friends and colleagues and celebrate this unique meeting and venue. A combined Welcome Reception will open the meeting, and an extraordinary Gala Dinner will fittingly close it in spectacular style.

FPM Scientific Convenor Dr Lewis Holford has also developed an exciting program for the Faculty of Pain Medicine Refresher Course Day on Sunday, May 4. The theme of this meeting will be ‘Pain at the cutting edge: surgery and pain’.

Our thanks are extended to our colleagues in the healthcare industry for their generous support of both the ASM and ASC.

Congratulations to all Fellows and others who have dedicated their time and expertise for what promises to be an outstanding scientific meeting for both Colleges and the Faculty of Pain Medicine.

We look forward to welcoming you in spectacular Singapore from May 5 to 9, 2014 for this unique, memorable and collaborative meeting.

There are a few hotels in the world whose names have become virtually synonymous with the cities in which they are located – and none more so than Raffles in Singapore. Named after Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore, Raffles Hotel opened in 1887 and soon became the haunt of intrepid travellers from around the world. Regular guests included Noel Coward, Joseph Conrad and Somerset Maugham, who described the hotel as embodying “all the fables of the exotic East”. Through their stories, the Long Bar, the Palm Court and the Bar & Billiard Room with its tiger, became familiar to people who had never even been to Singapore. Whilst preserving its atmospheric teak verandahs, gleaming white colonial façade and magnificent Gieves & Hawkes-clad doormen, Raffles is very much part of the modern, vibrant city of Singapore.
