SAON on behalf of the ANZONA Committee are moving forward with conference planning for the ANZONA Conference, to be held 27-29 October 2021 at Hilton Adelaide, and titled “ANZONA 2021: Building Resilience & Recovery into Orthopaedic Nursing”. We hope that you are able to join us.

Conference aims and themes have been tweaked in response to a year affected by the COVID-19 situation, hence a renewed focus on ‘resilience & recovery’ led by Dr Richard ‘Harry’ Harris as our keynote speaker.

We don’t have a crystal ball to the future but we hope to be flexible and agile enough to offer a rich, COVID-safe conference experience.

The safety of our members & community is of utmost importance. We acknowledge the uncertainty going forward but we are continuing to plan a great conference for you in a post-vaccine, post winter environment. Watch this space for updates.

Meanwhile stay safe everyone. Here’s wishing good health to you, your family and friends.
