Australia’s premier event in operating room management & perioperative professionals. Now in its 9th year, this event offers the latest programs and practices being implemented across public and private hospitals in Australia. National experts will share key strategies and methods, to enhance knowledge and improve skills for Theatre Management personnel.
This two day conference is dedicated specifically for operating room management and perioperative professionals, for example; Operating Room/Perioperative Managers, Operating Room Nurse Unit Managers and Directors of Surgical Services, Perioperative Services Manager.
Our 2017 conference will feature a site tour of the newly developed and highly anticipated Sunshine Coast University Hospital. The tour features a look into the new operating theatre facilities of the $1.8 Billion Hospital. The Sunshine Coast University Hospital houses the only combined CT and angiography-equipped OT in the southern hemisphere. Amongst other high-end equipment, the facility (which is modelled on the successful NHS in the UK and after some Canadian hospitals) features a series of national and state firsts.
