NZIPCS Entrance Sign

NZ Anaesthetic Technicians Conference

This November saw the annual NZ Anaesthetic Technicians conference, which ran in conjunction with the NZ Anaesthetists conference held in Rotorua.

Jenny Hembry and Raewyn Champness, 243 Surgical Centre’s theatre nurses were able to attend to remain updated with the latest happenings and thinking in the world of anaesthesia. It ran over three days and guest speakers were from Austria, Germany & South Africa attended.

It was a great opportunity to make new friends and keep in touch not just with colleagues but also with companies who were exhibiting and showing the latest technology & equipment available for use. The programme was packed with many excellent presentations and thought provoking topics along with updates on many familiar themes such as emergency anaesthesia and malignant hyperthermia.

NZIPCS remains committed to staff education and places pre-eminent importance on patient safety.
