49th National Congress of the Ophthalmological Society of South Africa

20 – 24 March 2019 Cape Town International Convention Centre South Africa

Dear Friends and Colleagues

Ophthalmology Congress which will be held in the same venue. It promises to attract more of the international academia and trade than usual, as it presents an ideal opportunity for participants to scout the venue, accommodation, and the Mother City. The organisers are busy assembling a faculty of respected speakers, both internationally and locally and we plan to present an opportunity to be informed of the latest advances in Ophthalmology, as well as to catch up with colleagues and friends from across the globe. Have your receptionists diarise the date. Hope to see you there!

Final Invitation & Registration

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 49th Congress of the Ophthalmological Society of South Africa to be held from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 March 2019 in Cape Town. This meeting will be held in the spacious and centrally located world class Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).The CTICC is (from an organiser’s point of view!) disturbingly close to wonderful tourist attractions such as Table Mountain with its beautiful hiking paths and cable cars, and the Cape Town Waterfront, renowned for seafood restaurants and shops selling fascinating African wares. What makes this OSSA Congress special is that it will take place one year before the 2020 World

Welcome Message

2019 is the International Association for the Study of Pain’s “Year against Pain in the Most Vulnerable”. I am excited to welcome you to the 2019 PainSA Congress which will focus on the many aspects of this theme including pain in children, pain in the elderly and pain in those with mental illness. The PainSA Congress in 2019 will be held over 3 days in the wonderful Drakensberg – an ideal setting for us to realise one of the primary goals of our organisation – to improve communication between scientists and clinicians working on pain to improve the standard of care provided to patients with disabling pain. The annual CPD-accredited PainSA Congress is one of the ways we have a positive impact on pain management in South Africa. The Congress provides all of us the opportunity to learn from experts about a range of topics in pain (which will range from the basic sciences to clinical application in vulnerable patient populations); and also gives us the chance to interact with clinicians and researchers from around South Africa, Africa and the world. We would like to encourage you to take an active part in this

congress by contributing to discussions, submitting scientific abstracts for presentation in the free papers and joining in the workshop activities. It is often through these discussions that ideas are shared, novel approaches to practice are proposed and developed, and research collaborations are formed. Do not be shy, we are all here to learn and develop with the goal of improving pain management and reducing the suffering of so many patients with whom we work. I look forward to seeing you all in May 2019 as when we learn together and build the network towards improving the lives of those suffering with pain in South Africa Professor Romy Parker

Dear Colleagues and friends An African proverb says: ‘Wisdom is like a baobab tree; no one individual can embrace it.’ This is why we need you at the ‘Challenging Beliefs’ congress. It is easy to fall into practices of deviance. Our congress will explore current best practice and aim to challenge our beliefs in allergy, pulmonology, paediatric pulmonology, primary immune deficiency and chest surgery. It has been seven years since the previous joint ALLSA and SATS congress. The international CWIG will join us. This joint meeting will offer delegates more than an extensive program to pick and choose from. Pretoria saw staggering development in the Menlyn and Lynwood precincts in recent years. The CSIR and Menlyn Maine areas come with

state of the art conferencing facilities, a wide variety of accommodation options and exciting opportunity to explore and renew friendships. We look forward to hosting you to four days of belief changing science in the bustling new hub of Pretoria. You are invited! Kind regards André van Niekerk ALLSA Convener Yours sincerely Professor Robin Green Chairman

Call for Abstracts & Congress Information Venue | Century City Conference Centre, Cape Town

Welcome to SORSA The Society of Radiographers of South Africa is a nonprofit professional association with voluntary membership. It represents radiographers in all four radiographic categories viz Diagnostic, Nuclear Medicine, Radiotherapy and Ultrasound. It is open to all radiographers, student radiographers and supplementary diagnostic radiographers who are registerable with the HPCSA, as well as organisations and institutions with a direct interest in the profession of radiography. The Society is regionally represented in all the large centres in South Africa and is a member country of the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT ). The aims of the Society are mainly to represent radiographers. The Society actively encourages continuing professional advancement of radiographers, and to this end it regularly holds seminars and congresses which are open to all interested persons. The Society is the only professional radiographic association in Africa which

publishes a professional journal with circulation locally as well as in neighbouring countries and overseas. The Society is an officially recognised association that represents the interests of both the profession and its members and therefore has a responsibility to its members to provide input on all radiographic matters at highest levels. The Society has, as one of its aims, the purpose of providing access to continuing education opportunities for its members. Seminars and congresses, as well as the publication of The South African Radiographer and a variety of updates / workshops and open meetings, provide these opportunities both at branch level and nationally. It has now recognised that more formal continuing education activities are necessary. In this way, the Society can take a more active role in striving to improve technical and ethical standards within the profession, while at the same time offering its members the opportunity for both personal and professional growth.
