AIAS Conference 2010

AIAS Conference 2010

Held at the Australian National University in Canberra the two day conference was well attended with a mix of both old and new faces. Presentations were again of a high and informative nature with some presentations being delivered by students from various institutions around Australia.

A pre-conference workshop was conducted by Doris Zagdanski a professional counsellor from Envirocare entitled ‘How to say No when the donor is not accepted’. This provided valuable information for those who deal with donor families and are often faced with the task of telling the families their loved one cannot be accepted into the donor program. An informal dinner was held after the pre-conference session at the Canberaa Yacht Club on the shore of Lake Burleigh Griffin. Delegates were able to catch up with colleagues prior to the official start of the conference the following day.

Presentations included;

The guest speaker was Professor Hardman from the ANU who talked about teaching anatomy in the postgraduate medical program at ANU. A trade display was set up in the foyer with representatives from various related trade professionals. The 2010 conference saw the introduction of student travel awards, and cash prizes for best presentation and best poster. The travel awards have been introduced to encourage students and other members to contribute to the conference.
