2017 ASM

Convenor Thanks

On behalf of the Organising Committee, thank you for attending the NZ Anaesthesia ASM for 2017!

This year’s scientific programme was themed FEAR AND EXCITEMENT, as we all have something we fear but also situations that excite us.  We can try and evade our fears or we can embrace them and learn to overcome them. Be courageous. Be motivated. Get excited…

Our panel of local and international speakers shared their invaluable expertise and experiences, with the aim that we may be better equipped in the future to face our fears and steer clear of danger. We hope you found the sessions provided both valuable learning, and inspiration. We also hope that you thoroughly enjoyed the ASM, the networking with friends and colleagues, the social activities on offer, and the bubbling city of Rotorua itself.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our panel of guest speakers, highly regarded local specialists, chairpersons, healthcare industry partners, workshop facilitators and the many volunteers required to make the 2017 NZ ASM such a success. Thank you all for your contribution!

Kevin Arthur, Anaesthetist, Waikato Hospital
