QLD Branch News - April 2020


My name is Rachel Price and I am the Chair for the QLD branch for ANZSRS, I also have my Vice-Chair Margy Britton who took on this role at the end of last year and will take over the Chair position in July 2021. Select ‘Read more’ to see what we have been up to this year and what we have planned!

We kick started 2020 with our first Branch meeting in March, this meeting served as an ASM practise round for all our members presenting at this years ASM in Melbourne. We have planned another four branch meetings which will be held throughout the year. Unfortunately, our May’s branch meeting has been put on hold with the uncertainty around COVID-19, however watch this space as we have a few plans in the pipeline for our members.

We also saw our first Library Corner submission in February which was prepared by Mackay Base Hospital. In August, Caboolture Hospital will be preparing another Library Corner submission. As for Case of the Month submissions; we have been rostered for May’s submission which will be prepared by Rockhampton Hospital and lastly, Gold Coast University Hospital will be preparing November’s Case of the Month.

This year Margy and I wanted to change the structure of a traditional branch meeting and bring our members a fun and educational trivia night based on Respiratory Physiology. This event will be held at a local venue later in the year where our very generous sponsor; Ascencia will be providing us with a delicious meal and beverages for the night.

I am excited for the year ahead and look forward to seeing you all at the next branch meeting.
