Hello Colleagues:

My name is David Rosen and I am the Chair of the Canadian Pediatric Anesthesia Society (CPAS). On behalf of the CPAS Board, I would like to thank you for your participation in our organization and encourage you to join us again in 2018.

CPAS represents the specialty of Pediatric Anesthesia at a national level and, through collaborations with other representative organizations, at an international level. We plan, support and implement educational opportunities at our stand-alone meetings and at the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society (CAS) meetings. We promote national Pediatric Anesthesia tele-rounds and online discussion forums.

Our members lead Canadian efforts at education, research, administration, quality improvement and knowledge translation in all areas of pediatric anesthesia, pediatric perioperative medicine and pediatric pain medicine. We provide a national venue for ongoing learning, improvement of outcomes and innovation in the provision of care to infants, children, youth and their families.

Our on-line presence continues to expand. We have a discussion forum which practitioners use to talk about issues relating to clinical cases, administrative challenges, equipment issues, guidelines and other areas of interest to Pediatric Anesthesiologists and their colleagues. This can be accessed by members via our website (pediatricanesthesia.ca).

Our website also allows members to purchase CPAS membership directly. It contains information about upcoming meetings and members can access educational material from our recent meeting on-line. There is information about fellowship opportunities nationally and the ability to liaise with other CPAS members. CPAS also provides a discounted rate to the journal Pediatric Anesthesia and members have access to its app.

Our popular Twitter account (@PedsAnesthesia) is widely used to disseminate the latest articles of interest to Pediatric Anesthesiologists, provide live updates of our annual meetings and promote real time discussion internationally. 

Your 2016-2018 CPAS Board consists of the following people:

Papu Nath_______Member at Large
Sarah Stevens____Chair of CPAS 2018 Local Organizing Committee
Katherine Tayor__Secretary
Koto Furue______Treasurer
Desi Reddy______Chair of the Scientific Committee
Clyde Matava____Communications Officer
Jeremy Luntley___Vice Chair
David Rosen_____Chair
Simon Whyte____Past Chair

I would encourage everyone to attend the CPAS 2018 meeting in Halifax October 26-28 taking place at the Delta Halifax. It promises to be an exceptional conference!

Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with questions, suggestions or ideas about how to improve our organization and our specialty. Also please join CPAS now either through our website or in conjunction with CAS membership renewal.
Thank you very much.
