Perioperative Medicine: An Update And An Opportunity For Interspeciality Collaboration
Perioperative medicine (PoM) inherently requires the interaction of multiple specialties, including general practice. Communication between these stakeholders, patients and their families requires a common understanding of the goals of care. To facilitate cross-specialty education and interaction, the Anaesthetic Continuing Education Perioperative Medicine Specialist Interest Group was formed in 2010. Out of this meeting, the Symposium in Perioperative Medicine has now become one of the biggest interspeciality PoM meetings in the world. To foster the development of PoM, The Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists has provided a platform for the colleges and interested parties to work together to develop a framework and qualification in perioperative medicine. This presentation will unpack the journey and look to the future of Perioperative Medicine.
