Review of our Annual Education Evening, St. John of God Hospital Murdoch, 2nd June 2016.
This is our annual AOTP evening meeting, and surprisingly on a wet blustery winter night, when most people have had a busy day at work, it was extremely well attended. It was also an early opportunity for members to renew their memberships and therefore gain free entry into the event.
A light supper was provided and we are fortunate enough to always have a variety of trade displays to 'wet' our appetite for new technology and equipment. This year we were supported by Parker Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Meditech Systems, Edward Life Sciences and Teleflex. AOTP would like to take this opportunity to thank these companies for their continuing help and support in making evenings/events such as these so successful.
Review from our Autumn Scientific Meeting, 12th March 2016.
Once again, we joined with our medical Consultant colleagues from the Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA) to have another successful meeting at the University Club of Western Australia. The sessions were opened by the President of the ASA, Dr. Lip Yang Ng who welcomed us all to the venue.
The first speaker was the world renowned Professor of Obstetric and Gynaecology Anaesthesia, Professor Michael Paech, from King Edward Memorial Hospital. This talk was entitled 'Rapid Sequence Induction for GA Caesarean Section – time to change'. As always, Professor Paech made this controversial subject interesting, and challenged whether every GA section should be a rapid sequence induction.
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.
