The WFSA is now coming to the end of our 60th anniversary celebrations. We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has been reading our newsletters, blogs, and engaging with us on Facebook and Twitter.
The practice of anaesthesia has changed and developed so much in the past 60 years with the creation of new technology and training programmes that have made anaesthesia practice safer in many countries.
However, there is still much more to do to ensure that safe anaesthesia is accessible to all.
Last week the WFSA was so proud to announce the winners of our 1st Innovation Awards. These six awards highlighted the most innovative and creative projects being undertaken in the service of improving anaesthesia care.
And we weren’t the only ones excited about it. The announcement received press coverage across the world, wonderful news for the winners of the innovation awards and for the WFSA.
As we begin to look to the next 60 years, anaesthesiologists and medical professionals, but also the general public and decision makers, must think about what we want to achieve and how we might get there.
Dr Bisola Onajin, Chair of the WFSA’s African Regional Section spoke to us about what the WFSA means to her and the impact she believes we can have in the future. The video ‘60 Seconds Reflecting on 60 Years’ is our first foray into filmmaking here at WFSA HQ, something that we hope to do more of in the future as we continue to share more of our achievements with you.
Our successes over the past 60 years simply would not have been possible without the hard work and enthusiasm of our Member Societies across the world, and so again we must say thank you to all of our supporters and those who give their time to help us work to fulfill our vision and mission.
Meanwhile, rest assured that this is not the end for the blog. It’s huge success over these last few weeks have shown that we have a large audience interested in our work and in improving access and standards in anaesthesia and global health, and so the blog will continue to be a place where we promote this.
