About this event

The Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group Patient Safety Conference will be held virtually this year on Friday 26 November 2021 in collaboration with the Difficult Airway Society. The first session will include engaging lectures around the current work of SALG, and the second session will focus on topical issues relation to airway safety. There will be a prize session for accepted abstracts, with a poster section and oral presentations. 

This online conference is being organised by SALG co-chairs, Dr Peter Young from the Association of Anaesthetists, Professor Jaideep Pandit from the Royal College of Anaesthetists, and Dr Barry McGuire from Difficult Airway Society.

The day will provide valuable knowledge for doctors engaged in clinical anaesthesia, pain management and intensive care medicine, and who have an interest in improving patient safety.   

RCoA and DAS members can book at member rates. Please email if you are an RCoA or DAS member.
