78th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian Orthopaedic Association AOA ASM
Perth, Australia
October 07, 2018 to October 11, 2018
Abstract Deadline:

AOA is delighted to bring the experiences of world leading experts for you to consider and develop professional practice for better patient outcomes - the theme of this year’s meeting.


Professor Gerald Hickson, from the Centre for Professional and Patient Advocacy, Vanderbilt University, will condense almost 30 years of experience as to how patient and co worker reported behaviour has facilitated the development of management protocols with proven positive influences upon patient morbidity, outcomes, and medico-legal issues.


Professor Keith Willett is responsible for key management of the United Kingdom’s National Health Service. His observations led to the development of successful best practice protocols for the management of trauma and the elderly with fragility fractures. Scientific data analysis links these protocols to improvement of patient outcomes and decreased mortality.


Each provides a unique view as to how to achieve better patient outcomes. One reflects foundation competencies, the bedrock for AOA 21; the other management issues, and their amalgamation to influence patient outcomes and mortality for the benefit to all.


I am deeply appreciative of the support provided by Greg and Catherine Witherow, as conveners, and of Alison Fallon, event manager supported by AOA staff, to develop an experience which you will both enjoy and view as complimentary to your professional practice.


Brigitte and I extend our invitation for you to experience a unique part of our great continent, and develop strategies from local and international medical leaders on how our patients can benefit by achieving “better patient outcomes”.
