LSA members also participated in international conferences and workshops in Singapore, Thailand and Korea. Two members attended a three day annual meeting of anaesthesiologists in China.

Additionally, the society supported loco-regional anaesthesia training in Mittaphab hospital, supported their members in training provincial staff for four provinces, and supported continuous medical education (CME) with invited speakers from Thailand and Malaysia.
