Safety & Advocacy
We work closely with key decision-makers, the medical community, and the media; providing trusted advice and information to help ensure our patients have access to safe, high-quality, culturally competent care whenever and wherever they need it; and our fellows and trainees have a voice on the issues that matter most.
We're the foremost authority on anaesthesia, pain medicine, and perioperative medicine in Australia and New Zealand; the professional membership organisation for more than 7000 specialist anaesthetists, 460 specialist pain medicine physicians, and 1640 specialists-in-training; and we have significant responsibilities in terms of setting the standards of clinical practice. So it's little wonder that safety and advocacy are central to everything we do.
We maintain highly effective relationships with a wide range of government and non-government agencies, healthcare providers, the community and the media on both sides of the Tasman, and have a reputation for providing evidence-based information and advice on everything from safe sedation to sustainable education in developing countries.
In this section, you can explore the various ways we're working with government agencies, regulators, healthcare providers, and the media.
