Welcome to Pan African Nurse Anesthetists Conference

The First Pan African Nurse Anesthetist Conference hopes to bring together nurse anesthetists, anesthesia providers, policy makers, and representatives from international agencies, non-governmental organizations, pharmaceutical & equipment manufacturers, and donors to focus on strengthening quality life-saving anesthesia care for pregnant women. The three-day event hopes to put the spotlight on key issues including availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of anesthesia care for the most vulnerable and under-served population.

Conference Sub Themes

Reducing Maternal Mortality

Where are we now and what can we do better? This is the first question that comes in mind before we start addressing strategies on how to reduce maternal mortality.

Standard of Care

The second track on Standard of care will be looking at Approaches and tools for improvement of quality and safety in maternal care. Establishing and adhering to the standards of care will be instrumental in achieving the goals of this conference.

Strengthening Health Systems

This is the third track of the conference which will focus on Strengthening Health systems. The track will seek to address what is the role of anesthesia nurses and technicians in delivery of safe obstetric anesthesia and critical care.
