RCPA Pathology Update 2024

27 March 2024

SA Pathology was a proud supporter of the inaugural RCPA Pathology Update 2024 | Answers in Adelaide, held in the Adelaide Convention Centre from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 March.

The highly regarded and well attended event featured expert staff from across SA Pathology as well as 10 international experts, each sharing their knowledge, experience, and insights on their speciality area within the pathology disciplines, including anatomical, chemical, forensic, genetic, haematology, immunopathology and microbiology.

Our speakers were honoured to contribute to the diverse and educational program, and to connect with Australian and international colleagues to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing pathology now and in the future.

We were also proud to showcase SA Pathology’s unique position within the health system – we offer a state-wide network of public hospital and community collection centres that is unparalleled in Australia – as well as the excellent service we provide to the South Australian health sector and broader community.

The event also provided a host of formal and informal networking opportunities, with the SA Pathology booth proving a popular destination for many attendees.

We were pleased to attend the new RCPA Fellows ceremony and the trainee oral and e-poster award presentations.

We congratulate Dr Jennifer Phan, a registrar with SA Pathology’s Genetics and Molecular Pathology directorate, winner of the RCPA Perinatal Pathology Trainee E-Poster prize for her work titled “A rare diagnosis of autosomal recessive recurrent biparental complete hydatidiform mole: the importance of clinical history and genetic testing”.

This award recognises vital work to increase the Perinatal Pathologists’ professional capacity and capability to undertake stillbirth autopsies and investigations, ensuring these services are available for bereaved parents who choose to access them.

We thank everyone who attended the event, it was fantastic to share our passion for pathology with you!
