spanza update meeting 2024


SPANZA Update Meeting & Optional Workshops
15 - 16 March 2024
The Canberra Hospital, ACT

The SPANZA Update meeting is held on Saturday 16th March and is a one-day course suitable for the occasional paediatric anaesthetist and other staff (nursing/technical) wanting to upgrade their knowledge of current paediatric anaesthetic management. Optional workshops will be held the day prior on Friday 15th March.

This will be a hybrid meeting with face-to-face and virtual registration options. This will be a simple zoom set up, without use of cameras or live interaction.  Questions can be asked, but will be done online and raised by the chair in the room.  The online experience is not designed to be an interactive attendance.

Both registration types will give you access to join us live on the day as well as watch the recordings post meeting.
