Presidents Report September 2016

on .


With increasing membership numbers it is now likely an education event will be feasible for November 2016.

Enthusiastic new committee members are always hard to come by, and requests have consistently fallen on deaf ears, however without new input and interest the writing is on the wall for the AOTP. Carrying on with our commitment to ongoing education, our immediate short term focus has now turned to strengthening educational resources on our website specifically for “members only” access.

Companies have been approached for material pertaining to anaesthesia equipment and techniques, in particular to help meet the student technicians learning objectives.

Roy Wyatt,
AOTP President
