Hornabrook Prize applications

The Day Care Anaesthesia Special Interest Group has become quite active in recent years and we are keen to promote research into all aspects of Day Care Anaesthesia. To this end we offer the Hornabrook Prize in Day Care Anaesthesia Research to be awarded to a junior specialist anaesthetist who has attained their higher qualification within five years of the closing date of application each year.

The prize is in the form of a one off registration to the Australian Society of Anaesthetists NSC in the year following the award.

The applicant also has to be a member of the Day Care Anaesthesia SIG which, of course, is open to all fellows as a part of their College fellowship; indication to join being a part of the subscription notice. Application to join any SIG can also be made at any time during the year.

Details can be obtained from the website: or by contacting the Day Care SIG secretariat on
