The New South Wales Operating Theatre Association has gradually grown, enveloping all metropolitan Sydney and spreading to our country areas.

We have Eight zones in total, with seven of the zones being outside the Sydney metropolitan area. Each zone has its own Zone Committee and have strengthened and enriched our Association, allowing all our members to participate in sharing perioperative nursing.

In 1974 ‘Exchange of Ideas’ days were introduced to the zones, with full weekend programs on current perioperative nursing, education or research topics. Initially the NSW College of Nursing and the NSW OTA combined their resources to present these programs.  The Exchange of Ideas program was recognised by the NSW Health Department as a continuing education project. These programs have provided an input of ideas to both city and country members.

Our members give their own time to participate at these weekends. The objective is to improve the standard of patient care in our operating suites through education and networking.

Professional Education Days are conducted and organised by each Zone.  

Members of the NSW OTA Executive Committee attend and contribute to the educational program and professional management of these day as requested by the Zone. 

An invitation is extended to all perioperative nurses to attend any of these meetings– all you need to do is contact your Zone Committee members for details.
