PEDIATRIC NEUROANESTHESIA, NEUROCRITICAL CARE, RESUSCITATION AND REHABILITATION: ALL ROADS LEAD TO THE CNS
The Safar Symposium is a two-day multi-departmental research conference held jointly by the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research and the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation Education and Research (WISER) in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Day one of the symposium begins with a cutting edge program titled “Pediatric Neuroanesthesia, Neurocritical Care, Resuscitation and Rehabilitation: All Roads Lead to CNS.” Outstanding national and local faculty will present the latest findings in their respective fields, including novel investigations spanning bench to bedside. This year’s program (see link) has a pediatric focus related to the recent relocation of the Safar Center to the Rangos Research Center in the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
Linked to the program, the Peter & Eva Safar Annual Lectureship in Medical Sciences and Humanities will follow at noon, and will be presented by Donna M. Ferriero, MD, MSc, the W.H. & Marie Wattis Distinguished Professor & Chair, and the Department of Pediatrics Physician-in-Chief UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, San Francisco, CA. Dr. Ferriero is one of the pioneers in the development of neonatal neurocritical care.
The first day of the Symposium will close with the Multi-departmental Trainees’ Research Day, with oral and poster presentations by trainees from the Departments of Anesthesiology, Critical Care Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Neurosurgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Day two of the program will be held at WISER, and will, in parallel fashion, highlight new developments in pediatric simulation. The details on this aspect of the program will be appearing soon.
