The Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand (PSANZ) is a multidisciplinary society dedicated to improving the health and long term outcomes for mothers and their babies. PSANZ encompasses and strongly encourages research focused on mothers and babies during pregnancy and at birth as well as the health of the newborn as its development continues after birth.

 The Code of Ethics and Professional Standards is a statement of the ethical principles, values and ideals of the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand (PSANZ). The purpose of the Code of Ethics and Professional Standards is to guide decision making and inform behavioural expectations of the PSANZ board, its members and subcommittees and to protect the integrity of the Society and its affiliates.

The PSANZ Board agreed recently to run our next meeting as an online-only event. The meeting will be held in a great virtual environment from 29-31st March 2021.

Many of you agreed earlier this year to rollover your PSANZ 2020 registration to next year. At that time, we could not anticipate the implications of the coronavirus pandemic for conference delegates, organisers, sponsors, venues, and accommodation and catering providers. What we did know was that the financial implications of postponing our conference were potentially dire.

It is only through the hard work of our secretariat team at CORP COMM, the goodwill of our sponsors and conference venues, and the understanding and patience of you, our members, that we have navigated a path through this first stage of the pandemic. Thank you

Our decision to hold a virtual conference in 2021 is the result of the Board’s desire to minimise risk to the society and maximise confidence in making plans for the meeting.
