World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists ®
The event served to highlight how the anaesthetic community is
working together to improve healthcare for under-resourced countries;
from the delivery of the SAFE obstetric course in Uganda, to the
development of a nurse anaesthesia training programme in Liberia. There
were exhibitions from e-SAFE, e-Learning Anaesthesia, Lifebox,
Mothers of Africa and Diamedica as part of the programme. The day also
served to showcase the RCoA’s e-Learning Anaesthesia project, undertaken
with e-Learning for Healthcare, that has grown to over 1,000 sessions
covering 400 hours of learning. HRH The Princess Royal ended the meeting
by thanking all those involved in the highlighted projects for their
enthusiasm and hard work.
