Where: Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific - Manly



Thu Oct 17

This meeting will allow you to take advantage of Sydney’s theatre and performing arts spring season, in combination with a challenging and compelling scientific program.

Based in the beautiful seaside venue of Manly at the Sydney Manly Pacific Novotel, the conference will provide a wonderful opportunity for delegates and their guests to explore the entertainment districts of the city. From the opera and ballet to live theatre, musicals and comedy clubs, a ferry ride across the harbour will get you there.

The two invited speakers, David Polaner from Denver, USA and Jenny Thomas from Cape Town, South Africa, will ensure that the scientific presentations will include diverse perspectives. Both these speakers, and a variety of internationally recognised presenters, will challenge delegates to question the way we practice and how we see ourselves as paediatric anaesthetists. Programme sessions will explore the various roles played by the paediatric anaesthetist, peri-operative physician, pharmacologist, physiologist, proceduralist, trauma specialist, pain specialist and researcher.

The conference will draw similarities between our daily work environment and that of a stage production - reminding ourselves that from the very earliest days of anaesthesia (depicted in Hinckley’s famous painting) to the most innovative use of simulation training, the operating theatre is exactly that- a theatre!

The social programme will have something for everybody and the conference dinner has been planned to make your visit to Sydney as memorable as any ‘grand opening night’.

Entertaining, stimulating, thought-provoking and confronting- the Sydney SPANZA conference in October 2013 is a ‘must do’ date for your diary.
