David A Scott is Director of Anaesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine at St. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne and is a Professor at the School of Medicine, University of Melbourne. He has a PhD in the neuropharmacology of neuropathic pain. He is also President of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and is a strong advocate for a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to perioperative care.

His clinical and research interests more broadly include cognitive change, regional anaesthesia, acute pain management, and cardiac and vascular anaesthesia. He has been a Chief Investigator on a number of nationally funded research grants particularly focusing on cognition in the elderly, and has presented nationally and internationally on many of these topics with over 90 published papers and book chapters.
