Meetings with International Colleges

The College has maintained strong external relationships with the international colleges since the Memoranda of Understanding were established with Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA), The College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland (CAI) and Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA). Prof CW Cheung, President, Dr Simon Chan, Honorary Secretary, Dr John Low, Council Member and Ms Kristy Cheung, CEO of the College had meetings with the Presidents and the CEOs of ANZCA, CAI and RCoA in Kuala Lumpur during ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting. More international activities will be undertaken in partnership with the international colleges in near future.

Visit by ANZCA President and Vice-President

Dr Rodney Mitchell, President of ANZCA, and Dr Vanessa Beavis, Vice-President of ANZCA, paid us a visit during 8-10 May 2019 and engaged in constructive discussion with our fellows and trainees. The discussions explored the potential collaborations and partnerships between the two Colleges on different areas such as joint academic events and cooperation on policy level.

Annual Scientific Meeting in Anaesthesiology 2019 (16 – 17 November 2019, Hong Kong)

The Annual Scientific Meeting 2019 (ASM 2019) will be held on 16-17 November 2019 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The theme of this year’s meeting is “Towards a Greater Mind”. The Organising Committee is putting together a stimulating scientific programme to enrich the minds of our audience with discussions on patient safety, subspecialty updates, medical education, and the latest innovations in anaesthesiology. Our social programme will focus on developing mindfulness to enhance our well-being and productivity. We have no doubt that participants of the ASM will go home with a “greater mind” and fresh ideas that can be incorporated into their daily practice to improve quality of care for our patients. Through knowledge exchanges among experts from across the globe, we hope the knowledge acquired can translate into better clinical practice that will ultimately benefit our patients.
More information will be available at the meeting website http://www.anaesthesiology.hk shortly.
