Adult and pediatric anesthesia care, perioperative medicine and pain management
We provide general, regional and local anesthesia care for all types of surgery and other procedures at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, the IWK Health Centre, Dartmouth General Hospital and Hants Community Hospital. We also offer pain management services to support thousands of people across the Maritime provinces in managing their pain.
Our department members are active researchers and teachers at Dalhousie Medical School who have a keen interest in latest advances in anesthesia care. Medical students, residents and fellows benefit from a breadth of learning opportunities via our many clinical programs and services.
Department members are also leading the way in clinical accountability. Anesthesia, Pain Management & Perioperative Medicine is among the first academic anesthesia departments in Canada to produce and report its clinical activity via a clinical accountability framework.
