On behalf of the organising committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join us in Blenheim for OASIS 2018. Following our hugely successful inaugural meeting, we will again be delivering an outstanding scientific programme for both the obstetric anaesthetist and the anaesthetist who covers obstetrics on call but not necessarily during daytime sessions.

Our scientific sessions will draw on the combined knowledge of anaesthetists, obstetricians and maternal medicine physicians from the Aucklands National Womens Hospital and other centres in New Zealand, and will address a broad range of topics relevant to peripartum anaesthetic care. On Friday 6th April there will also be two interactive Emergency Response Anaphylaxis and Obstetric Haemorrhage workshops which fulfill the ANZCA CPD requirements for the Emergency Skills category. Additionally two PBLD workshops are planned focusing on challenging obstetric topics.
