Department of Anesthesia members regularly “give back” by sharing their expertise through a variety of outreach initiatives, locally, provincially and around the globe.

For example, our department’s Global Health Program includes efforts to develop and deliver remote-location training programs and on-site training programs in Rwanda, Ghana and Thailand.

The department also administers the Anesthetic Services Program Encompassing Nova Scotia (ASPENS). ASPENS are a consultation service designed to assist and support departments of anesthesia in hospitals across Nova Scotia to provide safe, high-quality anesthesia care.
