ACORN missed seeing you at our 2020 conference in Sydney which was cancelled due to COVID-19. We’d like you to still know what we’ve been up to and how it will impact the domestic perioperative market.

We are excited about the release of the 16th edition of the ACORN Standards on 29th May 2020 which includes updated versions of existing standards as well as the following new or major reviewed standards;

1.         Antimicrobial stewardship

2.         Budgeting

3.         Chlorhexidine sensitivity

4.         Documentation

5.         Multi-resistant organisms

6.         Natural rubber latex sensitivity

7.         Reprocessing of Reusable Medical Devices

8.         Staffing

9.         Wellbeing.

Inevitably these changes will impact the expectations and purchasing decisions of Australia's perioperative workforce. ACORN invites business development, marketing, regulatory affairs and sales staff from Australia's medical industry and device manufacturers to join ACORN's CEO, Rebecca East and Standards Manager, Dr Cath Murphy in this special, once-off ACORN Webinar to learn all about the new ACORN Standards and the many ways ACORN is seeking to support our commercial colleagues position and market their products and devices consistent with the ACORN Standards. Registration fee includes log-on access for up to 20 registrants with a single company and unlimited post-event access to the recording.

A link to the webinar registration will be provided to you once you purchase a ticket to this event. 

Alternatively, ACORN is willing to provide a company-specific customised Standards webinar for those organisations interested in more bespoke training or consultancy. For further information, confidential discussion and estimated costings please contact ACORN Standards at
