International Conference on Anesthesia Patient Safety 2024 (ICAPS 2024) is the first international conference on safety management of anesthesia in the world. This conference is jointly organized by the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists (JSA), the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), cohosting with the Japan Federation of Anesthesiologists (JFA).

APSF Newsletter is the official publication of the nonprofit APSF and is published three times per year in electronic format.

Translation of the Newsletter started in 2017. The pioneer country was Japan. Since, then, the APSF Newsletter has been translated in 6 additional languages, Mandarin, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Arabic and Russian.

To celebrate this five-year success, the APSF proposed holding a worldwide joint symposium on patient safety, and this historic first meeting will take place in February of 2024.

ICAPS 2024 will initiate, expand, and enrich the anesthesia patient safety movement regionally and worldwide.

Let’s take the first steps towards worldwide anesthesia patient safety!
