SAFE project grant funding
The Association of Anaesthetists' (the Association) Safer Anaesthesia from Education (SAFE) course has been developed collaboratively by the Association and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA). It has been extensively piloted by a team of trainers under the leadership of the SAFE Steering group. It is a modular training course in obstetric or paediatric anaesthesia for physician or non-physician anaesthesia providers in low-income countries. Other variants are under development.
The steering group invites applications for funding to deliver the SAFE course from appropriately experienced Faculty Leaders. A Faculty Leader should have completed a SAFE train the trainer course and taught or attended a SAFE course previously. The SAFE trainer's manual is available under a Creative Commons License. For quality control and to maintain standards the course should be delivered as set out in the manual with faculty of the recommended size and level of experience in relation to student numbers. We ask users not to change the course materials. The Association and WFSA are keen to see the SAFE course being widely used around the world in lower resource settings. We welcome applications for grant funding to run SAFE in other lower resource countries according to the criteria set out below.
