2022 VRC CME Evening Meeting

On behalf of the Victorian Regional Committee (VRC) of ANZCA we warmly invite all fellows and trainees to attend our VRC CME evening meeting.
Our speaker for the evening, Professor Kirsty Forrest, will be giving a workshop on unconscious bias.
For the workshop you can expect:
-  A single page pre-reading document to be sent before the night, which requests you to take at least one 5 minute unconscious bias test with a link provided (this is to be able to go into the evening with some insight about unconscious biases that you may have).
- On the day Professor Kirsty Forrest will start with a talk before splitting into breakout rooms for approx 15mins, then returning to the main group to finish her presentation.
We look forward to seeing those that can join on the night.
Dr Kaylee Jordan
Convenor, ANZCA VRC
