ACEM President Dr Simon Judkins and Toxicology And Poisons Network Australasia President FACEM Dr Michael A Downes pay tribute to Dr Colin Page.
It is with great sadness that TAPNA and ACEM greet the news of the death of Dr Colin Page. Colin was a passionate and caring emergency physician who undertook sub specialty training in clinical toxicology. Among his many achievements was the establishment of an inpatient toxicology unit in Brisbane as well as initiating a Queensland based consultant service to the Queensland poisons information centre.
Colin undertook many roles professionally as an educator, researcher, mentor, clinician and innovator.
He was a loving, caring family man as well as a good friend to many within the toxicology and emergency medicine communities in Australasia.
His contribution to many aspects of medical care were substantial. He will be sorely missed by family, friends and colleagues.
