We're looking for new seminar material, both lecture and workshop based.

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 Northumbria and Aberdeen, the SAFE Paediatrics course will run in Chelthenham in September 2023. Running over two days (Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 September 2023) at the Sandford Education Centre, this course has been developed by specialist paediatric anaesthetists from the UK and US.

Don't miss the opportunity to gain CPD local to you!

Lectures include:
• Overview: the child is not a miniature adult
• Safety in paediatric anaesthesia
• Recognition and management of the sick child
• Trauma and burns management in children

Hands-on workshops include:
• Basic principles
• Advanced airway
• Resuscitation
• Medical problems
• Trauma and burns 
• Services for children in the NHS

Intended audience

This course is suitable for occasional paediatric anaesthetists & anaesthetic trainees. Over the two days, you will learn about the basic concepts in paediatric anaesthesia, focusing on UK paediatric anaesthesia practice and common scenarios faced by anaesthetists in well-resourced environments.
