The proposed date for the Western Anaesthesia Symposium 2013 is April 26/27. Once more it will be held in the Radisson Blu Hotel Galway. The program is already in evolution but we warmly invite submissions for suggested topics. Are there areas of your anesthesia or intensive care practice that have intrigued, confused or challenged you? Are there clinical controversies in your department or hospital that you believe would benefit from discussion and debate in an open forum such as WAS? Contact any member of the committee (two suggested addresses below) by name or anonymously, and we will give enthusiastic consideration to your suggestions for WAS 2013 or future years.
