Open link here to obtain full reflection of Dr. Rudakemwa with the strong partnership between Rwanda and CASIEF in Halifax.
This bilateral partnership has clearly been a success. After Dr. Rudakemwa completed his Canadian elective he mentioned “High level of responsibility for patient care, human factors and anesthesia, organization, scholar and social life” helped him shape his practice in Rwanda.

ANESTHESIA GLOBAL OUTREACH COURSE
Anesthesia is an essential component of every health system. Despite its pivotal role in routine surgical care, it has not been prioritized globally. This is undoubtedly partially due to a global health human resources shortage and disparities in distribution of personnel globally. Beyond this, at the level of many district hospitals in low-income countries, there are simply few resources to institute physician-led anesthetic care models that are commonplace in high resource settings. Given the scope of the surgical burden of disease, attempts to remedy the situation have included equipment donations, trainee exchanges, or even assisting patients to obtain care abroad. Their sustainability and effectiveness remains uncertain.
The Anesthesia for Global Outreach Course is focused on providing anesthesia providers with the skills and knowledge to work both safely and responsibly in the low-resource setting. The target audience for this course is medical professionals planning to deliver anesthesia, peri-operative, and critical care in the low-resource settings. It is designed primarily for anesthesiologists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and anesthesiologist assistants, however it may also include nursing, pain management, and respiratory care.

BETHUNE ROUND TABLE 2017
The Bethune Round Table (BRT) is an annual interdisciplinary scientific meeting hosted at a Canadian academic centre to discuss challenges and solutions to improving surgical care to under-serviced and marginalized populations in low- and middle-income countries. The objective of the BRT is to bring together health professionals from a variety of disciplines including surgeons, anesthesiologists, obstetricians, and nurses to share their research and experiences in the delivery of surgery in low-resource settings.
