Alan Merry standards quoteIt is now more important than ever to promote the International Standards including, and perhaps most importantly, in areas around the world where they are most challenging due to shortages in workforce, infrastructure, medicines and equipment.
In order to be able to realise the International Standards for a Safe Practice of Anaesthesia we must first recognise that this is a collaborative effort across governments, industry, civil society and beyond, and also understand where and why they cannot be met. We must “map the gap” in access to safe anaesthesia and use this data to influence advancement in every hospital, and for every patient.
It is not possible for one organisation alone to collect the data needed or for one organisation alone to drive and influence change, and so the WFSA has launched the Safe Anaesthesia For Everybody – Today “SAFE-T” Campaign to unite individuals, industry and organisations behind a shared mission.
