ANZSOM's Learning Update aims to provide members with information and resources to support professional development. This latest update focuses on preventing long term disability in injured workers and highlights the excellent presentations delivered on this topic by our international guest speaker Dr Gary Franklin.
Congratulations to Dr Devan Kumarasamy from Petronas in Malaysia who received the David Goddard Best Paper Award at the ANZSOM Annual Scientific Meeting in Adelaide this week.
Thank you to all the delegates who travelled far and wide to join with us in Adelaide this week to celebrate what is the essence of ANZSOM - learning, collaboration and friendship. The numbers say it all with a record attendance of 200 delegates, 21 sponsors and 42 speakers.
We are pleased to announce that ANZSOM members now have access to Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM), the official journal of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, Royal College of Physicians, London.
ANZSOM is proud to endorse the 'Reach for the Facts' campaign which aims to raise the awareness of the dangers of long-term use and misuse of prescription opioids, and encourage enquiry into alternatives to opioids for safe and effective pain management via discussions between patients and their medical practitioner.
