Welcome to the SPANZA website
The Society for Paediatric Anaesthesia in New Zealand and Australia (SPANZA) is an incorporated society of Australasian anaesthetists interested in the peri-operative care of all children.
SPANZA advocates for appropriate standards of care and education in paediatric anaesthesia, pain management and peri-operative care. We seek excellence in our practice and promote this through communication between fellowship members and liaison with similar paediatric anaesthesia organisations in other parts of the world. We support and encourage research recognising that the knowledge gained will benefit the children we care for.
