An Update for the General Anaesthetist
Infomed are with 2-way interaction!
You can still book for this course and places are still available to attend in person.
Furthermore, you might not need to be there in person!
Following enquiries from colleagues who want to attend this course but want to be reassured following concerns on Corona virus that the course is going ahead, YES, the course is going ahead as planned on will take place on Thursday 19 March 2020, [at the Park Plaza County Hall Hotel, 1 Addington Street, London SE1 7RY] and we have not been advised of non-attendance by any of the lecturers.
Nevertheless, as we understand some people might have health and logistical restrictions following measures by the NHS and may not be able to attend in person. With this in mind, at our Polytrauma Imaging course this week, we have successfully trialled our streaming service with delegates that allows us to have the lectures the deliver the course online.
We shall provide the necessary access for delegates to watch the lectures from home on the day and again thereafter as recordings.
The majority of PCs, Macs and tablets made in the last 10 or so years would be more than capable but here are a list of system requirements that you need to check when you sign up.
You will still receive your CPD credits and certificates as per normal following submission of your feedback online.

More about the course
This new Infomed course has been organised in response to suggestions and feedback from many general anaesthetists, from a wide range of settings, who have attended Infomed events in the recent past.
Lectures will be delivered by a Faculty of established, practicing consultant anaesthetists, experts in their fields, with long and extensive experience in advancing the knowledge and skills of peers nationally and internationally.
This course is aimed at Consultant General Anaesthetists, particularly those with on-call responsibilities based at the DGHs, whom are having to undertake obstetric and paediatric procedures.
This course presents delegates with an opportunity to have a comprehensive review of the challenging topics that would allow them to gain a fuller understanding of recent advances in anaesthetic practice.
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.

Dr Sarah Armstrong, Consultant Anaesthetist, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust
Dr Lionel Davis, Consultant Anaesthetist, Homerton University Hospital, London
Dr Rachel Collis, Consultant Anaesthetist, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff
Dr James Eldridge, Consultant Anaesthetist, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth
