We have secured a range of high profile presenters from Australia and New Zealand who will examine the themes of safety and human factors in anaesthesia.

Meeting details

Saturday September 9 and Sunday September 10, 2017
Novotel Barossa Valley Resort (find on Google Maps)


We welcome the following keynote speakers:

Associate Professor Stuart Marshall will present the Maurice Sando Memorial Lecture during the ASM on the topic of “Humans: The Imperfect Design”.
During the conference, we will also hear from Dr Merv Atkinson on the topic of Are all changes for the better?, Dr Michael Goldblatt on Working under extreme duress; strategies for self-management in panic situations, Dr Marion Andrew on Lessons learned; dealing with mistakes and bad outcomes and pilot, Brett Whitcombe on Fatigue management in Aviation and EMAC Instructor Dr Phillipa Lane on Practice Makes Perfect.

Conference Dinner

Join us for a relaxing dinner after the conference on Saturday evening at the Novotel Barossa at 7pm.
Our guest speaker for the evening is Derrick McManus, a police officer who was shot 14 times with a high-powered rifle and left lying on the ground for three hours before he could be rescued. He will draw on this inspirational experience and his history as a former sniper, tactical diver and counter-terrorist operative with the elite Special Tasks and Rescue (STAR) Group. Derrick’s story is pure inspiration and is a very real and powerful example of the durability of human performance. 
The three-course dinner and drinks is included for all delegates at no additional cost. Partners/guests are most welcome and additional tickets for the dinner can be purchased at $121 each.

Emergency Response Workshops

On Sunday morning, delegates will have the opportunity to improve their practical skills while meeting the ANZCA CPD requirements in CICO or anaphylaxis management. Only one workshop will be available to each delegate and as numbers are limited, separate registration is required to attend.

Social Program

For those delegates who would like to stay and explore the delights of the Barossa Valley, we have a social program of events on offer. Join your colleagues and start the morning off with a serious or social bike ride or perhaps a round of golf at the world class Tanunda Pines Golf Club (located adjacent to the Novotel). Alternatively, head out to discover for yourself the delights that the Barossa Valley wine region has to offer; take a look at our social program which has some self-book activities available in the Barossa.


This conference is claimable by ANZCA CPD participants: Knowledge and skills lectures – one credit per hour. 

Delegates who are also participating in the emergency response workshops may claim one workshop as an emergency response activity in their ANZCA CPD portfolio.
