What is a SAFE Paediatrics course
The SAFE Paediatrics course was originally designed to be delivered to anaesthesia providers in low and middle-income countries. In 2019, to fulfil a local need for paediatric anaesthesia training, the manual and course were significantly modified to suit anaesthetists in Great Britain and Ireland.
This course is aimed to provide introductory or refresher training for anaesthetists covering the essential management of paediatric elective surgical patients and also for commonly occurring situations within paediatric emergency and critical care.
About this seminar
After success in 2019 and 2020, the SAFE Paediatrics course will return to Truro in 2023. Running over two days (Thursday 13 and Friday 14 July 2023) at the Postgraduate Centre, Royal Cornwall Hospital, this course has been developed by specialist paediatric anaesthetists from the UK and US.
