Perioperative Medicine in Action - Free online course from the Royal College of Anaesthetists, 2018
University College London and the Royal College of Anaesthetists (UK) will soon be opening the second run of their MOOC (Massive Online Open Course)
Perioperative Medicine in Action, after a highly succesful launch earlier this year.
This is a free online course that we think would be of interest to your members - we would like to ask for your help to kindly disseminate information to them.
Why a MOOC on perioperative medicine
Too many patients die or suffer prolonged complications following surgery. Perioperative medicine is an emerging multidisciplinary approach optimising the care of the high-risk surgical patient.
We have brought together an internationally recognised, expert faculty to help you understand what perioperative medicine is and why we need it.
We provide high quality free education in perioperative medicine, we hope that these principles will be widely adopted, ultimately leading to safer surgery and improved outcomes for the high-risk surgical patient.
Who this course is for
This free online course is designed for all healthcare workers who are involved in a patients perioperative journey, including:
- pre-assessment nurses
- ward nurses
- theatre staff
- medical managers
The best MOOCs are those in which thousands of learners join together for a shared learning experience. We want tens of thousands of healthcare workers across the globe to join us. The first course ran in July 2017 attracted over 4000 learners from 129 different countries and we are hoping this course run will attract many more.
