The Annual Scientific Meeting is held in May each year in the UK or Ireland over 2 or 3 days. It consists of lectures on current topics aimed at paediatric anaesthetists working in specialist centres and also in teaching hospitals or DGHs. The meeting is accompanied by a lively social programme and the Annual General Meeting.
Free paper and poster presentations form an important part of this meeting and an annual prize is awarded for the best paper presented by an anaesthetist in training. All papers submitted are reviewed by a scientific sub-committee.
The APA supports and jointly organises a number of national and international meetings of Paediatric Anaesthesia including the Annual Linkman Meeting. For information on UK courses organised by other societies and regional centres, click here.
