4th AADPA Conf

The 4th Annual AADPA Conference

has been cancelled

Please join us at our next event!

Dear Members and Sponsors, 

Mark Bellgrove Keynote speaker at AADPA Conference managed by MERS EventsIt is with great regret that I write to let you know that the Board has taken the decision to cancel the upcoming AADPA conference in Melbourne in July 2020.

The uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and the various travel restrictions placed on hospital and University staff makes running the event untenable.

I am very grateful to the Novotel in Melbourne for providing us with a full refund on deposits paid. It would have been a significant hit to our funds to cover these cancellation costs.


My thanks also to A/Profs Tim Silk and Emma Sciberras from Deakin University for all their hard work in organizing the event, thus far.  Our plan is to continue with this team and run the annual AADPA conference at a similar time in 2021 in Melbourne.


My sincere thanks to Margaret Eagers our event manager, for all her assistance thus far as well.


On behalf of the board, I wish you and your loves ones good health and hope to see you in 2021. We will certainly explore whether there are opportunities to run a smaller event, such as a targeted workshop, towards the end of the year.

Date: 2021


Location: Novotel on Collins, Collins Street, Melbourne

Co-Convenors: Tim Silk and Emma Sciberras
