2021 ASM/Conference announcement

NZASM21 including the NZATS specific content will now be delivered as a VIRTUAL EVENT on the scheduled dates of October 27 – 30, 2021.

In spite of the challenges over the last 18+ months, the organising committee remain excited about NZASM21. While they are disappointed you will not get the chance to visit Ōtautahi Christchurch in person to enjoy their city, the Organising Committee has put together a scientific program they are proud of.

We have partnered with The Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP) to provide access to their publications for a twelve month trial.
