NOVEMBER 2017:

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:

  • anaesthetists
  • surgeons
  • geriatricians
  • pre-assessment nurses
  • ward nurses
  • theatre staff
  • physiotherapists
  • pharmacists
  • GPs
  • 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.

Accessible learning for busy people
A free four week course with a flexible three hours of learning per week hosted by the UK's largest MOOC provider: FutureLearn.

The course re-opens on the 13th November 2017 and we would like to invite you to enrol now by following the link below:

APRIL 2018:

OASIS Obstetric Anaesthesia Special Interest Symposium, Blenheim NZ, 6 - 7 April 2018

On behalf of the organising committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join us in Blenheim for OASIS 2018. Following our hugely successful inaugural meeting, we will again be delivering an outstanding scientific programme for both the obstetric anaesthetist and the anaesthetist who covers obstetrics on call but not necessarily during daytime sessions.

Our scientific sessions will draw on the combined knowledge of anaesthetists, obstetricians and maternal medicine physicians from the Aucklands National Womens Hospital and other centres in New Zealand, and will address a broad range of topics relevant to peripartum anaesthetic care. On Friday 6th April there will also be two interactive Emergency Response Anaphylaxis and Obstetric Haemorrhage workshops which fulfill the ANZCA CPD requirements for the Emergency Skills category. Additionally two PBLD workshops are planned focusing on challenging obstetric topics.
