Perioperative Medicine SIG

The Perioperative Medicine SIG has three aims which include, to improve patient safety and outcomes, to share knowledge and collaborate with specialty groups and to develop the specialty of perioperative medicine with various craft groups.

Future meetings

  • The 2022 Perioperative Medicine SIG meeting will be held at the Peppers Noosa Resort, Sunshine Coast from 24-26 November. Registrations will open on Tuesday 5 July. Please visit the meeting website for further information.

ANZELA-QI

The Australian and New Zealand Emergency Laparotomy Audit - Quality Improvement (ANZELA-QI), co-led by ANZCA and RACS, is a bi-national, multi-centre project that aims to improve perioperative care of patients undergoing emergency laparotomy. There is a compelling case for a high quality, prospective audit to help drive quality improvement for this at-risk patient cohort. Similar initiatives internationally have demonstrated significantly enhanced processes of care and reduction in mortality. Already, the project has enrolled 50 hospitals across both countries, and is hoping for more centres to join.

For further information and participation, visit the ANZELA-QI website.
