GCAPE Weekend Conference


Thankyou to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Unfortunately there isn’t enough interest to warrant organising a conference at this stage.

It has been suggested that we should organise a weekend away for Gold Coast Anaesthetists and their families that includes some legitimate educational content. The general proposal is;

– somewhere nice to spend a weekend with friends/partners/families,
– within a few hours’ drive of the Gold Coast,
– for obvious reasons, some genuine educational component.

I expect the most suitable venues will be major hotel/resort/winery B&B type accommodations that have a meeting room or restaurant we can use for the education session. You will have to  pay for your own accommodation, and perhaps a contribution towards any charges for conference facilities.

It is important to realise that we will need help with the organisation and running of the event, otherwise it won’t happen. Please let me know if you have any special skills in event planning (I don’t) or are willing to present educational material.

To get the ball rolling, I have put together a “Survey Monkey” survey to help establish if there is enough interest to proceed. To this end, if you are interested please complete the survey at;


prior to Monday 14th September. I will get back to everyone with results shortly afterwards, and hopefully another survey to narrow down a date and venue.

Thanks for your help with this, kind regards,

Ian Cameron.
