A word from our chairman
Welcome to the website of the Belgian Association for Paediatric Anaesthesiology (BAPA). Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and sharing our interest in paediatric anaesthesia.
The BAPA is a professional group of like-minded anaesthesiologists with diverse experiences and backgrounds in paediatric anaesthesia. The aim of our non-profit organization is to help practitioners improve the quality of anaesthetic and perioperative care of children throughout Belgium. We therefore organize a Refresher Course every year in January as well as a Scientific Meeting / Congress in spring.
This website is designed to be a means of information and communication: we would appreciate your feedback to improve its content and make it even more user-friendly.
