The AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting serves not only as a forum for the presentation of state-of-the art overviews on the pathobiological and clinical aspects of GI cancer, but also affords the opportunity to the Australasian scientific community to explore future directions for research and collaboration.  The meeting provides GI cancer researchers and specialists with the opportunity to present their research and discuss the current challenges and recent innovations in a multidisciplinary setting.

The University of Western Australia’s 2022 Colorectal Surgery Workshops

25-08-2022

Registrations are open for the following 2022 workshops in Colorectal Surgery at CTEC, The University of Western Australia.

 

Core Skills: Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery Workshop on Thursday 25 August 2022 – Suitable for Service Registrars and Junior Trainees in General Surgery. It is highly recommended for participants to have laparoscopic and suturing experience, and as such is not suitable for Junior Doctors below the level of Service Registrar.

CTEC’s new Core Skills: Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery Workshop is a cadaveric and animal tissue workshop aimed at providing Junior Trainees in General Surgery and Service Registrars with greater knowledge and increased skill in techniques in anastomosis and laparoscopic colorectal surgery.

It is designed as a progression from CTEC’s Core Skills: Introduction to Laparoscopic Skills workshop, and is most suitable for past participants of that workshop or similar laparoscopic surgery workshops.  It is highly recommended for participants to have laparoscopic and suturing experience, and as such is not suitable for Junior Doctors below the level of Service Registrar.

The workshop aims to provide participants the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of more complex procedures in colorectal surgery, consolidated by practical benchtop and cadaveric sessions in laparoscopic colorectal surgical techniques and procedures.  This educational activity will provide experience in procedures that participants may have received little exposure to in the clinical setting.


Core Skills: Advanced Laparoscopic Colorectal Skills Workshop on Friday 18 November 2022   – Suitable for Senior SET Trainees, Fellows and Consultants in Colorectal Surgery.  Limited Observer positions are available.

CTEC’s Core Skills: Advanced Laparoscopic Colorectal Skills Workshop is a highly practical one-day cadaveric workshop aimed at providing participants with the most efficient techniques for advanced laparoscopic colorectal surgery, including safe colon mobilisation and techniques for vessel control.

The workshop aims to provide participants the opportunity to gain and consolidate skills in dissection techniques and knowledge of anatomy associated with colorectal resections.  This cadaveric workshop will also feature case scenarios and discussions, whilst allowing sufficient time for practising skills in a supportive environment with a high faculty to participant ratio.  Limited places for Observers are available.

 

Registrations are available via the CTEC web site: http://www.ctec.uwa.edu.au
