Working Together I Aotearoa NZ Anaesthesia ASM 2024

Tēnā koutou katoa - Greetings to you all

Friends and colleagues from Aotearoa and abroad, we warmly invite you to attend the 2024 Aotearoa NZ Anaesthesia ASM in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland.

The ASM is a combined event brought to you by the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists (NZSA), ANZCA New Zealand National Committee and the New Zealand Anaesthetic Technicians Society (NZATS).

The meeting will be held Thursday 7 – Saturday 9 November. This year, we are also hosting a special Perioperative Symposium on Tuesday, 5 November, open to all to register to attend. There are also a variety of practical workshops on Wednesday, 6 November.

Working together is the theme of this year’s meeting. The theme reflects the benefits of multidisciplinary team collaboration, working together to provide the best care for our patients. The combined nature of the ASM brings our anaesthesia community together to hear from an exciting lineup of more than 60 international and local speakers. The programme will inform and inspire through thought-provoking lectures and stimulating discussions.

We are excited to welcome four international speakers to Tāmaki Makaurau: Prof Ki Jinn Chin (Toronto), Prof Bobbie Jean Sweitzer (Virginia), A/Prof Joyce Yeung (University of Warwick, UK) and A/Prof Hairil Rizal Abdullah (Singapore General Hospital).

The highlight of the social programme will be the gala dinner at the Viaduct Events Centre. The events centre offers a captivating view of Auckland’s lively Waitemata Harbour and is convenient to the city centre and nearby waterfront entertainment precinct.

We encourage you to register early.

On behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to meeting Anaesthetists, Anaesthetic Technicians, and members of our wider health community and Industry in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland at the 2024 Aotearoa New Zealand ASM.
