Now in its ninth year, the popular Developing World Anaesthesia course will take place online for the first time in November. It is suitable for anyone planning, or even just thinking about going to work in the developing world, from junior trainees through to senior consultants. The course will be made up of a mixture of ‘live’ online lectures, interactive discussions and small group workshops, covering topics including:

  • practical use of ketamine
  • drawover anaesthesia, ether and halothane
  • trauma, paediatric and obstetric care in low resource settings
  • demonstration of commonly used equipment designed for austere environments
  • organising your time away
  • experiences from the field

The course is taught by an experienced faculty of consultants and senior trainees, who between them have extensive experience of working in this field. We hope to include a live discussion session with an anaesthetist currently working in a low income country. 

The course is being offered at a significantly discounted online rate with limited places available. 5 CPD credits are anticipated and CPD certificates will be issued to attendees as usual.
