EDUCATION MISSION STATEMENT
The SPA-AAP Pediatric Anesthesiology 2024 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 of this program are to: enable attendees to reinforce their existing fund of knowledge; to introduce them to new, state-of-the-art techniques; and to provide them with information that will improve the perioperative care of children.
SCOPE & TYPES OF ACTIVITIES
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 and refresher courses, panel discussions, hands-on workshops and problem-based learning discussions. Additionally, an important part of the program is the presentation of new clinical and basic science research in oral and moderated poster-discussion forums. Significant attendee involvement and feedback are encouraged in all aspects of the program, and will be facilitated by the use of real time computerized audience polling as well as sessions where the audience directly participates in case discussions. Program content is, in fact, the direct result of membership input and extensive audience polling at prior meetings.
This program is intended for anesthesiologists and other practitioners who care for children in their practice of anesthesiology and/or critical care. It is also intended for clinical and basic science researchers whose areas of investigation relate to pediatric anesthesia.
