Plenary eight: Challenge the Presidents, past, present and future
Dr John Bonning
I am the newly elected President-Elect succeeding the esteemed Tony Lawler and Simon Judkins. As the first ever NZ President of our binational College and current Board member of ACEM, a practicing Emergency Physician and Chair of the NZ Faculty of ACEM and have represented the interests of Emergency Physicians on both sides of the Tasman for some years.
A doctor for 28 years, the immediate past Clinical Director of Waikato Hospital's ED, NZ Rugby Union Match Doctor and Police Medical Officer I am also in (very) active clinical practice.
I am a passionate advocate of Choosing Wisely and believe that medicine's much-vaunted ability to help the sick is soon to be outstripped by a propensity to harm the healthy.
