Welcome to the ASCEPT-APSA 2020 Joint Scientific Meeting
During these challenging times dealing with COVID-19 and the government regulations implemented to flatten the curve, the ASCEPT-APSA 2020 Joint Scientific Meeting Committee have been investigating the viability and safety of holding the November 2020 meeting at the Crown Perth as scheduled and exploring alternative options to ensure that members of both societies are able to share their knowledge and research in some format.
As a result of (i) the social distancing policies and the uncertainty of the situation later this year with regard to COVID-19, (ii) government policies and (iii) whether organisations will allow their staff to travel and attend meetings, the organising committee have made the decision to cancel the face to face meeting in Perth in 2020.
In the meantime, we are exploring options to deliver some aspects of the meeting via a virtual platform. Please be assured that we are working hard to find the best approach to delivering components of the 2020 ASCEPT-APSA Joint Scientific Meeting in some format. As soon as we have more concrete information, we will be in contact.
We want to express our support and thanks to all of those from our sector who are responding to COVID-19 and who are committed to providing health care to people across Australia.
Thank you for your continued interest and your support of both ASCEPT and APSA.
