About the SSAI

The mission of SSAI is to promote safe, modern and effective care for our patients needing the competences of the specialty Anesthesiology and Intensive care. In SSAI the five Nordic nations with shared values and preferences, work together to harmonize the work of the five national societies, based on high Nordic ambitions and expectations in health care and our specialties.

The mission is specified in the Position Paper Shaping the future of Scandinavian anesthesiology: a position paper by the SSAI published by the SSAI in 2010 in Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica (Søreide E, et al. on behalf of the Position Paper Task Force, Acta Anaesth Scand (2010), 54(9): 1062-70).
