Outgoing Treasurer

on .

aotpDue to work and personal commitments, I am no longer able to commit to the role of Treasurer and will be handing the work over to Sheila Su (current student rep) who will perform the role on a temporary basis.

If any members are interested to be on the committee, now is the time to express your interest. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or speak to your local committee member. Thank you for your patience and support whilst I learnt this role. I look forward to participating as one of the committee members for the remaining year.

To further secure our working relationships with the anaesthetists, we now have our monthly committee meetings at the ANZCA/ASA offices. This is hugely beneficial for AOTP and of course the committee members who attend the meetings every month, usually after work. - Linda Long.

AOTP

With increasing membership numbers it is now likely an education event will be feasible for November 2016.

Enthusiastic new committee members are always hard to come by, and requests have consistently fallen on deaf ears, however without new input and interest the writing is on the wall for the AOTP. Carrying on with our commitment to ongoing education, our immediate short term focus has now turned to strengthening educational resources on our website specifically for “members only” access.

Companies have been approached for material pertaining to anaesthesia equipment and techniques, in particular to help meet the student technicians learning objectives.

Presidents Report

on .

AOTPJune is traditionally a quiet month for the AOTP, consolidating for the coming year’s events.  

The local ANZCA have recently had their annual change of committee, and we have managed to make contact with two consultants willing to join our association, in a liaison capacity between the two groups.  Dr Scott Douglas and Dr John Martyr (WA ANZCA Chairperson) have accepted our offer of honorary membership 2016/2017.  Our many thanks to outgoing liaison consultants, Dr Ian Maddox and Dr Richard Riley. 

The Association of Operating Theatre Practitioners is currently looking for enthusiastic members interested in assisting the executive in the running of the association.

In particular we are looking for someone to assist the Treasurer and Secretary with their workload, with a view that one day they may be interested in taking over these substantive position.

Taking a position on the executive can appear an onerous task, and this assisting role will enable those interested parties the chance to ease into the position without fear of failure in the future.

Happy Christmas in July.

Roy Wyatt,
AOTP President
