The vision of the Department of Pediatric Anesthesia at BC Children's Hospital is to provide excellence and innovation in patient-centered care for the children and their families of British Columbia. Evaluation, improvement, and innovation are key research activities that allow us to optimize the clinical care we provide.

In addition to providing expert anesthetic care, the department is an active participant in both medical education and research. Department members participate locally, nationally, and internationally in education and research to improve and advance the practice of pediatric anesthesia and pain management.

The research team is the embodiment of the department's commitment to its academic mandate. All of the pediatric anesthesiologists in the department personally support research efforts by contributing to PART operational funding.
