BeSARPP | 2022 SASA Conference

2022 SASA Conference

Almost two years ago, COVID-19 swiftly moved from the back pages of our news to the forefront of our existence, savagely sweeping across the world, turning the world on its head, and making this pandemic the greatest global challenge of our time. And for the first time, the South African Society of Anaesthesiology (SASA) annual national conference, the premier event on our society’s calendar, did not take place in 2021.

As we adapt and find ways to restore the disturbed rhythms of our lives, allow us to take pleasure in inviting you to be part of the exciting SASA 2022 Virtual Conference from the comfort of your home or office. It promises to be a memorable event.

SASA’s annual conference in the field of anaesthesiology and perioperative care is a landmark event that provides exciting educational and networking opportunities as it strives to improve perioperative patient care through the development of our anaesthesiologists and allied disciplines. The coming together of our national members and a host of international friends and colleagues provides for the ideal forum to interrogate latest scientific and clinical development, share novel education and training methods, network  and exchange ideas and experiences, and engage with our trade partners.

The KwaZulu-Natal Branch of SASA is proud to serve as the organiser and host for the first, fully virtual SASA 2022 Conference between 03-06 March 2022.

The meeting will offer a balanced faculty of international and national speakers on a wide variety of topical anaesthesiology issues as part of an integrated, relevant and state-of-the-art programme incorporating cutting-edge science with practical patient care. As a fully Virtual Conference, we have tweaked the format to enhance the delegate experience. Virtual workshops have been scheduled and our trade partners are busy finding creative ways to keep you enthralled in our virtual trade exhibition. Rest assured, there will be something for everyone.

We wish you well and look forward to your being part of our conference next year.

Kind regards

Dr Komalan Govender
Dr Zanine Moyce
Prof Dean Gopalan
