About the course

Delegates will be provided with a comprehensive overview of new/recent evidence (and insights into the implications for practice) that will allow them to identify skills and knowledge gaps, if any, relevant to their practice and clear ways by which these can be addressed. Very importantly, delegates will gain greater confidence in their current practice and/or identified areas of practice in need of review or change.

Lectures will be delivered by a faculty of established, practicing consultant anaesthetists with long and extensive experience in advancing the knowledge and skills of peers nationally and internationally.
