It is with great pleasure that we invite you to take part in the 26th Kenya Society of Anaesthesiologists (KSA) and 6th Critical Care Society of Kenya (CCSK) Conference on 23rd-24th August 2018 at the Leisure Lodge Hotel, Diani; the preconference workshop is on 22nd August.
This annual gathering is the largest open scientific conference on anaesthesia and Critical care related issues in Kenya – bringing together a broad cross-section of more than 200 professionals from within the country and around the region to meet and discuss the state of anaesthesia, latest scientific developments in related research, with a focus on ensuring improvement of practice and not only development, but enactment of policy as well.
The theme of this year’s meeting is “Meeting Tomorrow’s Challenges Today”. This is in light of the recently launched National Anaesthesia Guidelines, increased sub specialization, increase in ICU number, limited resources and concept of virtual college- College of Anesthesiologists of East, Central and Southern Africa (CANECSA) as well as the wellbeing of practitioners, which all advised the theme.
The tracks will cover sessions in:
- Ambulatory Surgery
- Anaesthesia in Difficult Environment.
- Critical Care
- Perioperative Medicine
- Transplant Anaesthesia
We will also have two pre-conference workshops, which will be confirmed soon.
There will also be plenty of networking opportunities and fora for engaging with all present. We invite submission of abstracts, in this regard.
It is our great pleasure to bring you a conference in coastal paradise at one of the most beautiful beaches in the continent.
Details of accommodation will be shared with you in due course.
