Safe-T Summit 2019

about this event

Global equity and teamwork in anaesthesia and surgical care

Welcome to the 2nd SAFE-T (Safe Anaesthesia for Everybody - Today) Summit. Co-hosted by the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) and the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM), the SAFE-T Summit 2019 will build on the success of the inaugural summit to advance the global patient safety agenda.

Bringing together leaders from within and outside the perioperative team we will highlight the importance of global equity, and teamwork in anaesthesia and surgical care, with a focus on perioperative safety through equity, ethics, gender, diversity and social strategies.  

In partnership with related industry, governments and NGOs, this one day Summit will contribute to safer anaesthesia, surgical and obstetric care around the world.   

World-renowned experts will open sessions with theme-setting presentations. Facilitated group discussions will develop recommendations and identify practical ways forward.  

Learnings and recommendations from the summit will be published and disseminated internationally as part of the WFSA's SAFE-T Campaign.

Academic Surgical Congress

The 14th Annual Academic Surgical Congress (ASC) will take place February 5 - 7, 2019, at the Hilton Americas-Houston in Houston, Texas. Each year, our meeting experiences tremendous growth and the quality of the science tops itself. Last year, we again had an incredible number of abstract submissions and attendance. Our continued growth and success depends on you!


The ASC is an exciting venue to hear and discuss the latest scientific advances in all disciplines of academic surgery, and the quality of the meeting depends on the submission of your best work. The breadth of work being presented includes topics in education, clinical outcomes, health services research, as well as basic and translational science. We are actively working to again provide a strong program, which will be engaging and exciting from start to finish.


The ASC, which is jointly sponsored by the Association for Academic Surgery and the Society of University Surgeons, will begin accepting electronic abstract submissions Monday, June 25. We will accept abstract submissions until the deadline on August 24, 2018. As in previous years, abstracts will be considered for presentation in full or quickshot oral format. Full oral talks will consist of an 8-minute presentation followed by 4-minutes of discussion. The quick shot talks consist of a 3-minute oral presentation, 5 slides maximum, and 2 minutes of discussion. We will also continue to showcase the top abstracts submitted to the meeting in plenary sessions dedicated to basic science, clinical/outcomes, and education.


Given our record-breaking abstract submission numbers over the past few years-and in order to maximize the number of participants in the ASC - we will continue to limit the number of abstracts that an individual first author may present to TWO presentations. There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted, and if more than two abstracts are accepted the two highest scoring abstracts will be selected for presentation. Please note that there is no limit on the number of abstracts in which an author may be included as a middle or senior author.


Abstracts accepted for presentation at the ASC are eligible for full manuscript submission to the Journal of Surgical Research (AAS) and Surgery (SUS). To be considered for AAS Awards, manuscripts must be submitted to the Journal of Surgical Research (JSR) by December 7, 2018. Otherwise, manuscripts may be submitted to Surgery by January 21, 2019 or to the Journal of Surgical Research by March 1, 2019 for special meeting related consideration. Please see the Abstract Submission Guidelines for more details.

Global Financing Replenishment Event

Global Financing Facility
Replenishment Event, hosted by the Governments of Norway and
Burkina Faso, the World Bank, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Every year, more than 5 million women, children and adolescents die from mostly preventable conditions. This is in large part due to a US$33 billion annual health financing gap for women, children and adolescents.

The Global Financing Facility (GFF) in Support of Every Woman Every Child is a new approach to sustainable health financing that is transforming how countries finance and invest in the health of their people.

The replenishment conference will bring together leaders from countries, partners, civil society and the private sector, all of whom are committed to prioritizing the health and nutrition of those who need them most.

The replenishment of the GFF Trust Fund will enable the GFF to expand to 50 countries with the greatest needs – saving millions of lives by 2030 and helping all countries on their paths to building sustainably financed health systems.

Tuesday 6 November 2018
9.30am – 3.30pm
Oslo City Hall
Rådhusplassen 1
0037, Oslo, Norway
