AUSTRALASIA’S FIRST DEDICATED GASTRIC POINT-OF-CARE ULTRASOUND (POCUS) COURSE 17 NOVEMBER 2018 AUCKLAND

A full stomach is a major risk factor for aspiration under sedation or anaesthesia, with the lack of an objective tool to assess gastric content limiting
risk assessment to patient history alone. Gastric POCUS is an emerging point of-care tool that provides objective information on gastric content and volume.
It is a brief, focused procedure performed at the bedside, and allows the clinician to make a more informed decision for the safe care of their patient. The POCUS North Shore gastric ultrasound course is more than just a scan-and-go workshop. It is a comprehensive structured course designed to help participants be competent at performing and interpreting gastric point-of-care ultrasound.

MARCH 2019:

Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Pain Society, Christchurch, 7-10 March 2019

Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Pain Society Inc.

 7-10 March 2019

Rydges Latimer Hotel, 30 Latimer Square, Christchurch 8011, New Zealand

www.nzps2019.nz

Pain is an issue that presents across settings, disciplines, and can impact all aspects of a patient's life. This makes the opportunity to gather and discuss how we understand and treat pain so important. On the eve of a new decade, both those who experience pain and those who treat it are confronted with an ever growing body of information about how best to approach pain management. We hope this conference will be an opportunity to take stock of the knowledge that has shaped pain management in 2019, the information that patients must wade through to make decisions about their own pain experience, and the future directions for pain management.

Christchurch, the seat of the Canterbury Region, is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand lying on the South Island's east coast, just north of Bank Peninsula. It is home to 396,700 residents making it New Zealand's third most populous city behind Auckland and Wellington. Christchurch is not only the gateway to all that the beautiful South Island has to offer, it is a city that is in a period of growth and revival making it an exciting location to explore.

We would like to warmly invite you to participate in our 2019 meeting and look forward to seeing you there.

Dr Jessica Mills

NZPS 2019 Conference Convenor
