Anaesthesia project

An integral part of LimMCARE is improving safe caesarians to reduce the high number of anaesthesia-related maternal mortality in the province. Limpopo has a dire lack of anaesthesiologists in the public sector coupled by a lack of anaesthetic skills amongst health care providers. LimMCARE is providing technical and administrative support to the Department of Anaesthesia in the province. The key intervention is to capacitate health care providers on safe anaesthesia. We have currently been offering the Diploma in Anesthesia (DA) programme and would like to embark on accreditation as an Anaesthesia Training Centre for both doctors and nurses. This will require forging partnerships with established organisations to transfer the necessary research and related skills and expertise to the Polokwane/Mankweng Department of Anaesthesia.
