The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) Grant Program supports research directed towards enhancing anesthesia patient safety. Its major objective is to stimulate studies leading to prevention of mortality and morbidity resulting from anesthesia mishaps.

APSF accepts applications in one of two categories of identified need: CLINICAL RESEARCH and EDUCATION AND TRAINING. Each year, we strive to fund at least one grant in each of the two categories. Highest priority is given to: Studies that address peri-anesthetic safety problems for relatively healthy patients; or Studies that are broadly applicable AND that promise improved methods of patient safety with a defined and direct path to implementation into clinical care; or Innovative methods of education and training to improve patient safety.
