The Scientific Programme Committee invites you to participate in the 2018 ANZSGM ASM by submitting an abstract for presentation in concurrent sessions. We are seeking submissions that will provoke debate, stimulate discussion, offer new ideas and encourage the dissemination of research findings.

The theme of the Meeting “Cutting edge: Optimising the Journey for Older Surgical Patients” will showcase the new paradigm of peri-operative and surgical care of older adults, providing an opportunity to collaborate with our anaesthetic and surgical colleagues. You will also hear the latest scientific research and best clinical practice updates on other geriatric issues such as incontinence, wound management, acute and chronic pain, nutrition, stroke and anticoagulation, onco-geriatrics, de-prescribing, and much more.
