PAPSA meeting, November 2018
Pan African Paediatric Surgical Association (PAPSA) 2018
Hugh Greenwood British Association of Paediatric Surgeons (BAPS) PAPSA Neonatal Skills Course, Ethiopia, 2018
This was the 6th pre-conference training course for the PAPSA meeting, held at the Black Lion Hospital skills laboratory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The faculty included:
BAPS: Tony Lander (Course Co-ordinator), Richard Stewart, Haitham Dagash, David Drake, Niyi Ade-Ajayi and Kokila Lakhoo
Local: Hanna Getachew, Woubedel Kiflu, Samuel Nagash
There were 38 participants from 9 countries and all paediatric surgery trainees. We had 45 applications but needed to restrict the numbers due to space allocation. The skill level of the participants was high and the discussions very lively. The content included bowel anastomosis, gastrostomy, duodenal atresia and TOF model with discussions around the topics.
Despite a some local organisational challenges, we were able to deliver a popular and high standard course, with participants providing positive feedback on the overall relevance of the training, and the anastomosis, gastrostomy, duodenal atresia, TOF sections of the course.
