TAPNA is the annual scientific meeting for the Toxicology and Poisons Network Australia. Join Australian and International toxicologists at Sydney to run through a plethora of topics including fomepizole (should we use it in Australia?), urine drug screens, what to do with an anion gap and the latest in OP poisoning.
TAPNA is hosting a stellar faculty including Dr Michael Eddleston from Edinburgh whose primary research is in pesticides and antidotes. He will be updating everyone on treatments in 2018 along with POC chemical analysis. Dr Sergej Zacharov from the Czech Republic with an interest in toxic alcohols will lead the charge on discussing fomepizole. Francois Oosthuizen will discuss how to detect illicit drugs followed by Dr Tom Robertson on toxicology sample analysis, rounded off with our own Dr Joe-Anthony Rotella discussing whether urine drug screen are ‘choosing wisely’. Dr Zeff Koutsogiannis will chair the anion gap, osmolar gap and all round VBG/ABG dilemmas to finish off the first day. Friday starts with an OP update, Dr Nick Buckley gives his cocktail for paraquat poisoning then Dr Thanjira Jiranantakan, will give her perspective on antidotes for pesticides in Thailand. Dr Katherine Isoardi will enlighten us in phenibut poisoning, Genevieve Adamao, Dr Michael Downe, Dr Jeffery Lai and Dr Peter Chai will keep us up to date with social media and how this integrates with toxicology. And I haven’t even started on half the interesting cases or papers being presented.
Saturday includes the opportunity to attend a satellite Wiki Tox course ‘Tox issue in acute care’ covering 6 case-based sessions exploring key topics in toxicology.
