The first ever SAFE-T (Safe Anaesthesia For Everybody - Today) Summit aims to advance the global patient safety agenda. Bringing together leading providers from the perioperative team we will highlight the importance of working together to address the healthcare challenges identified by the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery.
In partnership with related industry, governments and NGOs, this one day Summit will contribute to safer anaesthesia, surgical and obstetric care around the world.
World-renowned experts will open sessions with theme-setting presentations. Facilitated group discussions will develop recommendations and identify practical ways forward.
Learning and recommendations from the summit will be published and disseminated internationally as part of the WFSA's SAFE-T campaign.
