Safety and quality

Anaesthetists are proud of their role as leaders in patient safety

In keeping with its dedication to safety and quality of care for the community, ANZCA has established a Safety and Quality Committee to assist the ANZCA Council in advancing this mission.


The activities of the Safety and Quality Committee encompass all aspects of safety, anaesthesia mortality reviews, publication of information relevant to the safe practice of anaesthesia, assisting in the preparation of relevant guidelines based on best evidence and establishment of improved communication on topics of safety for all practitioners in anaesthesia, intensive care and pain medicine.


If you are aware of a safety issue in your hospital or are interested in safety and quality issues, please contact the Safety and Advocacy unit at sq@anzca.edu.au
