2017 AGM Education Day "Live Well and Learn"

Education Funding GuidelinesAfter a false start with very low interest for a March AGM, the AOTP committee committed to hosting our AGM Education day on Saturday 10 June 2017. Around 50 members attended the event at Willow Function Room, Willow Pond, Canning Vale.

Our first speaker was Professor Fiona Wood. Director of the Burns Service of Western Australia (BSWA), Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Fiona Stanley Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, co-founder of the first skin cell laboratory in WA, Winthrop Professor in the School of Surgery at The University of Western Australia, co-founder of the Fiona Wood Foundation (formerly The McComb Foundation), Australian of the Year 2005 .... Prof Wood's list of achievements is long and we were honoured to have her attend our Education Day.

AGM, Education & Wellness Day

AOTPThe AOTP committee have organised another Education Day/AGM with a noted change. Due to the lack of enthusiasm for our last AGM we decided to include a wellness day combined with the education day at Willow Pond Function Room (Ramons), 459 Nicholson Road, Canning Vale on Saturday 10 June 2017, 9am – 3pm.

FREE for AOTP members – Login to the AOTP Members’ Portal and register or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Registration closes COB Friday 2 June for catering purposes.

Professor Fiona Wood is on the program with her excellent talk on "striving for excellence in the workplace" and Dr Jess Gillet from PMH has an interesting talk on the updates on the difficult intubation trolley for paediatrics. Workshops promise as usual to be interesting and hands on, plus we have included some Tai Chi, Massages with some lovely door prizes (loose comfortable clothing is recommended for tai chi sessions).
