2021 Anaesthetics Curriculum: Guidance for ACCS anaesthetists in training and educational supervisors

Published: 17/11/2021

Crosslinking evidence across both ACCS and stage 1 Anaesthetics curricula

While ACCS anaesthetists in training are completing their ACCS training, much of the experience they gain, and evidence they collect during the 4 ACCS placements, will be relevant to stage 1 training of the Anaesthetics Curriculum.

Individuals are therefore encouraged to consider whether evidence they complete as part of the ACCS Curriculum can also be linked to Anaesthetic Stage 1 training on the Lifelong Learning platform (LLp).  

The following table provides guidance for the mapping of ACCS Learning Outcomes to relevant Anaesthetics stage 1 domains of learning.

ACCS anaesthetists in training will already have a considerable amount of Anaesthetics stage 1 training populated on LLp by the time they progress from ACCS to Anaesthetics Stage 1 training after CT2.   Further information on the stage 1 domains of learning can be found on the RCoA website: https://www.rcoa.ac.uk/documents/2021-curriculum-learning-syllabus-stage-1/introduction
