Brainstorming solutions for perioperative neurologic injury

Saturday, 28 March 2020

Auditorium, School of Medicine, The University of Auckland, 85 Park Road, Grafton, Auckland, New Zealand

Keynote Speakers

Professor Kristin EngelhardProfessor, University Medical Center of Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany

Associate Professor Lis EveredPrincipal Research Fellow, University of Melbourne and Head of Research, St Vincents Hospital

AP Lis Evered has a BSc, MBiostat and PhD in neuroscience. Lis is AP of Neuroscience at Weill Cornell Medicine, NY; Scientific Head of Research in the Department of Anaesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine, St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne and AP, University of Melbourne. She is Associate Editor for BJA and Senior Editor for Anesthesia & Analgesia, and a reviewer for many peer-reviewed journals. She is the recipient of more than $8M in competitive funding. Lis is Chair of the International nomenclature consensus working party which has revised postoperative cognitive disorders from research to clinical guidelines and is currently finalising research guidelines. Her main area of research interest is identifying the impact of surgery and anaesthesia on the cognitive trajectory of older individuals.

ABOUT ACS 2020

Protecting the brain from perioperative neurologic injury is a goal for all anaesthetists. Perioperative insults around the time of surgery can result in long-term neurological complications, especially in vulnerable populations such as the young and old.

The 2020 Auckland City Symposium will provide an exciting update on anaesthesia and the brain. An international, multi-disciplinary panel including experts Professor Kristin Engelhard and Associate Professor Lis Evered will cover important topics ranging from traumatic brain injury, the Perioperative Brain Health Initiative, paediatric neurotoxicity as well as updates on the most recent scientific evidence for depth of anaesthesia, management of acute stroke and novel uses of anaesthetic agents.

 

Join us for an inspirational day of conversation and networking!
