Obstetric Anaesthesia SIG

The objectives of the Obstetric Anaesthesia SIG are to improve patient care and outcomes in obstetric anaesthesia. This is through promotion of education, quality and safety and research. The group is highly collaborative with other groups within ANZCA and also other societies, colleges and groups nationally and internationally.

We work to co-ordinate resources, provide education and deliver updates to anaesthetists who care for obstetric patients as part of their regular clinical work and those who are occasionally required to manage obstetric patients.
