Global Partnerships Strategy

Our Strategy

By working with local organisations and institutions, we aim to strengthen international healthcare systems to ensure the long-term stability and access to healthcare for previously excluded patient groups

In 2016 we launched our first Global Partnerships Strategy.  The objectives of the strategy are:

  • playing a proactive role in advocacy for global anaesthesia services and the provision of anaesthesia as part of the wider surgical team.
  • working in partnership with overseas based education providers to deliver high quality training to the anaesthetic workforce, which meet the long term needs of the local health care system.
  • collaborating with health ministries (or equivalent) and professional organisations to strengthen health care systems.  This is to ensure long term stability and access to health care for groups previously excluded.
  • engaging proactively with and supporting overseas members.
  • monitoring and evaluating College activities considering the latest evidence based practice.

Will address these objectives through the following project areas:

  • training the trainer and curriculum development
  • assistance with institutional development
  • supporting training and education for UK anaestheteists in LMICS
  • develop the Medical Training Initiative (MTI)
  • re-launch of e-SAFE resource
  • e-learning and developing educational tools
  • engaging with members and developing networks.

The College's Global Partnerships Strategy is due to be revised in 2020.
