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:

Call for Abstracts Now Open

The New Zealand Pain Society is pleased to invite you to submit an abstract for consideration to be presented at the NZPS 2019 Conference from the 7 - 10 March 2019 at Rydges Latimer Hotel, Christchurch, NZ.

Pain is an issue that presents across settings, disciplines, and can impact all aspects of a patient's life. This makes the opportunity to gather and discuss how we understand and treat pain so important. On the eve of a new decade, both those who experience pain and those who treat it are confronted with an ever growing body of information about how best to approach pain management. We hope this conference will be an opportunity to take stock of the knowledge that has shaped pain management in 2019, the information that patients must wade through to make decisions about their own pain experience, and the future directions for pain management.

Christchurch, the seat of the Canterbury Region, is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand lying on the South Island's east coast, just north of Bank Peninsula. It is home to 396,700 residents making it New Zealand's third most populous city behind Auckland and Wellington. Christchurch is not only the gateway to all that the beautiful South Island has to offer, it is a city that is in a period of growth and revival making it an exciting location to explore.

We would like to warmly invite you to participate in our 2019 meeting and look forward to seeing you there.
