Welcome to PACSA 2019

Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to Johannesburg for the 23rd Annual Paediatric Anaesthesia Community of South Africa (PACSA) congress. This will be taking place at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton, Gauteng from the 8th to the 10th November 2019. The meeting is perfect for those working in the private or public sector as occasional or permanent paediatric anaesthetists. It allows for networking and the opportunity for delegates to interact and exchange ideas, bound by a common thread: providing high level anaesthesia in often challenging circumstances.

We are designing an exciting conference programme preceded by 5 excellent, intensive, hands-on workshops. Due to popular demand, and our belief in creating inclusive, informed teams, we will also be running a nurses’ refresher course and workshop.

This thought-provoking congress will have a broad range of dynamic international and local speakers. This will include a range of nationally recognised stalwarts in the field, and budding talent within our midst. The aim is to ensure coverage of practical management tips, cutting edge topics, as well as summarising evidence-based scientific knowledge for current practice. We plan to inform, educate, challenge and inspire our audience.

We look forward to seeing you in Johannesburg!
