WELCOME

ANZHPBA Virtual Meeting 2020

On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Hepatobiliary Association, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in our annual virtual meeting that will be held on the 22nd, 29th of October, and 5th of November this year, 2020.

The meeting will be focusing on technical aspects of hepatic, pancreatic and biliary surgery spread over three weeks. We have developed an exciting program that will allow our fraternity to share and learn from our national experts.

The program will deliver a full academic content similar to that of a regular conference. Each week will focus on one aspect of HPB and will be delivered in a unique self-paced style in order to facilitate maximum opportunity to review the entirety of the program. Each week will culminate with a live session on the advertised dates where we will discuss the material presented by our experts and host a live technical video session.

We have also facilitated a virtual environment to engage with our industry sponsors and partners. This will allow us to review new developments from industry in the field of HPB. Our partners would also be able to deliver their material to you avoiding conflict with educational sessions and presentations.

We are looking forward to the submitted research presentations, and for the first-time video abstracts.

We will be facilitating chat rooms and networking opportunities, and there will be a sponsored breakout session and an ANZHPBA hosted discussion room on each of the live virtual days.

The meeting’s content will be available for registrants to view throughout the weeks of the meeting and for 3 months after. Attendance of the meeting will be eligible for CPD points.

We look forward to seeing you all virtually in what we promise to be a unique and exciting program.

On behalf of ANZHPBA
