Dear Colleagues

 

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 76th ASM of the AOA, a combined meeting with the NZOA to be held in Cairns. The schedule for the meeting will be busy, with a mix of original research, insights from guest speakers, instructional courses, debates and discussions covering each of the specialties and many other areas relevant to orthopaedic surgeons.

 

The meeting theme, Ethics and Professionalism, will allow us to explore the way we practice orthopaedics and I expect plenty of discussion around this topic and many challenges to be raised.

 

I would like to thank the subspecialties from both sides of the Tasman for generating their relevant section programs and for choosing the best abstracts from a strong field. Thanks also goes to the industry who have organized speakers and workshops and who have generously sponsored the meeting.

 

I hope you enjoy the meeting and the excellent social program and get into the casual atmosphere in far north Queensland and remember, no ties!

The major input of the Subspecialty Societies in selecting the most outstanding Presentations is acknowledged and appreciated.

 

We trust the Scientific Programme is both relevant and stimulating, and successfully dovetails with an exciting Social Programme to round off a productive and memorable week in Cairns.
