WA Branch Annual Scientific Meeting 2020

When: 21–22 August 2020
Where: Pullman, Bunker Bay 

You will be aware that AOA acknowledges the risk the COVID-19 pandemic poses to the community, members, colleagues and patients. As a health sector leader, AOA has a responsibility to its members and their patients to respond to this situation in an ethical, calm and pragmatic way. We must all help stem the spread of COVID-19, as the Australian health system cannot afford to have a significant proportion of the orthopaedic workforce unwell, infected, isolated, or transmitting disease to patients.

Therefore the 2020 WA Branch ASM will not proceed. 

The next WA Branch ASM will be held 21-22 August 2021 at Pullman, Bunker Bay. 

Below is an expression of interest form for you to complete and you will be sent an email when further details on the rescheduled event are available.

If you require any further information please contact AOA Event Manager, Alison Fallon on 0403652145 or alison.fallon@aoa.org.au

Please continue to look after yourselves and those around you and keep the lines of communication open. AOA will continue to monitor advice from the government and health departments to coordinate and act in the best interest of national welfare.

For other meeting dates please consult the AOA Calendar

Orthopaedic Services Claims Advisory Review Panel (WA) 

Led by the Australian Orthopaedic Association (WA Branch) and supported by WorkCover WA, this innovative initiative will run on a trial basis and see the formation of an expert panel to review submitted surgery proposals/quotes in relation to the application of MBS item numbers and descriptors, with a view to providing informed, non-binding recommendations.
