Event Description

Registration will open at 09.30, with the course starting at 10.00. The course will finish at 16.00.

There are no safe anaesthetics, only safe anaesthetists. Even if you avoid theatre as much as possible, the management of pain is one of our most fundamental obligations to patients. This course demonstrates how the integration of basic science and robust evidence will provide the best outcomes for patients under your care.
Bringing alive the often impenetrable diagrams and language surrounding the physiology and pharmacology of anaesthesia and analgesia, by applying them to your individual patients and their conditions, this course is designed by you. An advance questionnaire will allow the course tutor to tailor the application of the principles to the cases you are seeing in practice. 

After attending this course you will be able to:

• Apply the basic science and latest evidence in anaesthesia and analgesia to your own clinical practice
• Ensure that your decisions on pain management and anaesthetic regimes always put the patient’s best interests first
• Use a logical “Airway, Breathing, Circulation” approach for calm and safe anaesthesia
• Tailor your anaesthetic protocols for more challenging patients to ensure the best outcome
• Design the most appropriate multi-modal pain management plans, including preventative analgesia where possible.

Please note - if you want to book three courses for the price of two please call Jessica Wachtel on 020 7908 6336.
