Why participate?

Many Clinicians caring for surgical patients are challenged by the growing complexity of these patients, particularly their perioperative management.

Pre-admission clinics are responding, and perioperative medicine is becoming an emerging field and this course will address deficiencies in this area.

This course will be conducted by Monash University (Central Clinical School - Alfred Hospital), in conjunction with the Alfred Hospital's Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine.

Perioperative Medicine Short Course Webinar

Due to the current uncertainty regarding the spread of COVID-19 and subsequent government regulations, we regrettably have made the decision to cancel this year's Perioperative Medicine Short Course Block Day scheduled to be held on Saturday 14th November in Melbourne, Australia.

We have made this judgment based on the unpredictability of availability of travel for registrants to attend, the difficulty of adhering to social distancing and maximum limits on gatherings, and obviously the health and safety of all involved.

In replacement of the Block Day we are pleased to be offering a half day online Webinar featuring an element of participant interaction, high quality speakers and topics.

Thursday, 12 November 2020 13:00 to 17:30 AEDT

Session format: 25 mins lecture – 20 mins Q&A
