From Trisha Bray, 2014/2015 AOTP Secretary
I would like to thank the Current AOTP committee for your continued support this year.
We are a totally volunteer committee and we attempt to have a representative on the committee from as many hospitals as possible so we can keep all our members updated on changes, and support each other.
I have been the AOTP secretary for the past 4 and I believe it is now time for me to stand down and pass the role onto another member. At times I have confused members with my lack of “IT Experience” …. I know many members receive more than one email when I click send to early or to late, however I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the executive committee of the AOTP.
Membership has continued to grow this year with more student and associate members.

WHO ARE THE AOTP?
The Association of Operating Theatre Practitioners (Inc.) is your LOCAL, (Perth-based) Western Australian Association, supporting local anaesthetia technicians, assistants to the anaesthetist and anaesthetic nurses.
The AOTP was formerly known as the WA Society of Anaesthesia Technicians (WASAT), and has been around since 1972; the name change came about in 2009, to more truly represent the changing face of the assistant to the anaesthetist, and to allow for a more diverse membership base. Membership is open to any health professional who has an interest in anaesthesia, and who wishes to expand their skills and knowledge through attendance at study days, conferences and skills workshops.
These events are provided free or at very low cost to AOTP members and are a great way to network. The AOTP also arrange to have medical companies at these events, who supply equipment for our members to try, answer questions and often these companies participate in skills workshops for our members to get 'hands-on' practice, in a relaxed and friendly environment.
CHANGE IS COMING!
