The ESAIC is dedicated to supporting professionals in anaesthesiology and intensive care by serving as the hub for development and dissemination of valuable educational, scientific, research, and networking resources.



The ESAIC hosts the Euroanaesthesia and Focus Meeting congresses that serve as platforms for cutting-edge science and innovation in the field. These events bring together experts, foster networking, and facilitate knowledge exchange in anaesthesiology, intensive care, pain management, and perioperative medicine. Euroanaesthesia is one of the world’s largest and most influential scientific congresses for anaesthesia professionals. Held annually throughout Europe, our congress is a contemporary event geared towards education, knowledge exchange and innovation in anaesthesia, intensive care, pain and perioperative medicine, as well as a platform for immense international visibility for scientific research.


Professional Growth

The ESAIC's mission is to foster and provide exceptional training and educational opportunities. The ESAIC ensures the provision of robust and standardised examination and certification systems to support the professional development of anaesthesiologists and to ensure outstanding future doctors in the field of anaesthesiology and intensive care.



The ESAIC aims to advance patient outcomes and contribute to the progress of anaesthesiology and intensive care evidence-based practice through research. The ESAIC Clinical Trial Network (CTN), the Academic Contract Research Organisation (A-CRO), the Research Groups and Grants all contribute to the knowledge and clinical advances in the peri-operative setting.

Learn more about the ESAIC Clinical Trial Network (CTN) and the associated studies.


EU Projects

The ESAIC is actively involved as a consortium member in numerous EU funded projects. Together with healthcare leaders and practitioners, the ESAIC's involvement as an EU project partner is another way that it is improving patient outcomes and ensuring the best care for every patient.


Patient Safety

The ESAIC aims to promote the professional role of anaesthesiologists and intensive care physicians and enhance perioperative patient outcomes by focusing on quality of care and patient safety strategies. The Society is committed to implementing the Helsinki Declaration and leading patient safety projects.



To ESAIC is committed to implementing the Glasgow Declaration and drive initiatives towards greater environmental sustainability across anaesthesiology and intensive care in Europe.



The ESAIC works in collaboration with industry, national societies, and specialist societies to promote advancements in anaesthesia and intensive care. The Industry Partnership offers visibility and engagement opportunities for industry participants with ESAIC members, facilitating understanding of specific needs in anaesthesiology and in intensive care. This partnership provides resources for education and avenues for collaborative projects enhancing science, education, and patient safety. The Specialist Societies contribute to high-quality educational opportunities for European anaesthesiologists and intensivists, fostering discussion and sharing, while the National Societies, through NASC, maintain standards, promote events and courses, and facilitate connections. All partnerships collectively drive dialogue, learning, and growth in the anaesthesiology and intensive care sector.



Guidelines play a crucial role in delivering evidence-based recommendations to healthcare professionals. Within the fields of anaesthesia and intensive care, guidelines are instrumental in standardizing clinical practices and enhancing patient outcomes. For many years, the ESAIC has served as a pivotal platform for facilitating continuous advancements, improving care standards and harmonising clinical management practices across Europe.



With over 40 years of publication history, the EJA (European Journal of Anaesthesiology) has established itself as a highly respected and influential journal in its field. It covers a wide range of topics related to anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine, including perioperative medicine, pain management, critical care, resuscitation, and patient safety.



Becoming a member of ESAIC implies becoming a part of a vibrant community of nearly 8,000 professionals who exchange best practices and stay updated on the latest developments in anaesthesiology, intensive care and perioperative medicine. ESAIC membership equips you with the tools and resources necessary to enhance your daily professional routine, nurture your career growth, and play an active role in advancing anaesthesiology, intensive care and perioperative medicine.

Newsletter April 2022: Patient Safety Movement Foundation Summit

Alex Rawlings – ESAIC Patient Safety and Simulation Project Manager

2022 World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit

April 29 @ 8:00 am – April 30 @ 5:00 pm PDT

Since 2017, ESAIC has co-convened the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s annual summit. This relationship has been important in talking the ESAIC’s message on Patient Safety beyond the borders of Europe and into the international arena.

The PSMF has existed since 2014. It is a non-profit organisation dedicated to eliminating medical errors.

The story of its creation was born out of a desire to bring change to healthcare.  “When the 1999 report To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System was released by the Institute of Medicine, it was the first time the impact and consequences of medical errors were quantified. The report generated a sort of enlightenment that led many like-minded people to form organisations to combat medical errors and hospitals to begin implementing processes to reduce harm.” Joe Kiani, Founder, and Chairman of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation was so distressed by the statistic that over 180,000 Americans were dying annually from preventable causes in hospitals, that he began to ask questions and track what was being done in the United States to reduce these unnecessary deaths.

As this number grew year by year he was inspired to build an organisation that would focus on bringing change to healthcare so that there would be ZERO preventable deaths, an ambitious goal that the Foundation believes in wholeheartedly because, as they say: “ONE preventable patient death is one too many”.

The ESAIC has a core vision for its contribution toward Patient Safety: Healthcare that is free from preventable patient harm. Seeing that this vision aligned with the PSMF, it was a natural step that the 2 organisations would collaborate to support these goals. Since 2017 ESAIC Presidents have been keynote speakers at PSMF Summits and members of the ESAIC Patient Safety and Quality Committee have been invited, as panellists.

This year ESAIC President Edoardo De Robertis will be a Keynote Speaker at the PSMF 2022 Summit, speaking on the topic: Innovation doesn’t need to be glamorous or expensive.

The 2022 World Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit will be a virtual event. This will make it easier for ESAIC Members to attend. As we are co-conveners, ESAIC members will receive a $100 discount at checkout by using the code ESAICMEMBER.
