Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA) Annual Meeting - 2018
The SPA Annual Meeting will focus on topics of interest to those who provide anesthesia, sedation, pain management, and critical care services to infants and children. The overall goals for attendees of the program are to reinforce and enhance their existing fund of knowledge, and to introduce them to new and state-of-the-art techniques and information that affect their practice and improve the perioperative/critical care of pediatric patients. The program brings together experts from clinical and basic science disciplines related to pediatric medicine, anesthesia, and surgery. General topic areas include anatomy, pathophysiology, anesthetic pharmacology, sedation, pain management, patient safety, and child advocacy. We will also discuss practice and career management issues. The presentation format is varied, and includes lectures, panel discussions and problem-based learning discussions.
