2021 Melbourne Winter Anaesthetic Meeting

On behalf of ASA Victoria and the ANZCA Victorian Regional Committee, we invite you to the 41st Melbourne Winter Anaesthetic Meeting to be held virtually from Saturday 28 August to Sunday 29 August.

Saturday’s program will commence with a plenary session, followed by a choice of two streams running concurrently in sessions two and three. The fourth session changes format and will be run as a quality assurance (QA) session with an introductory presentation followed by small group case discussions and a group summary:

  • Plenary session.
  • Progress perspectives OR practical perspectives.
  • Perioperative perspectives OR population perspectives.
  • Quality assurance session.


In addition to Saturday's enlightening mix of presentations and sessions, delegates can also choose to attend workshops the following day. 

The virtual days will run like the usual face-to-face meeting with each themed session followed by a real-time live virtual panel. You’ll be able to send in questions to the panel like you would for usual meetings.

We look forward to having you join us at this year’s Melbourne Winter Anaesthetic Meeting.
