Mentoring sessions (Meet at registration desk, Ground floor)

1H02 Domain 1, 3

The Association are offering conference participants 45 minute mentoring sessions with one of a team of highly trained and experienced mentors, all of whom use mentoring for themselves. The mentors are a selection of trainee and senior anaesthetists, some of whom have held posts as Royal College Tutor, Deputy or Regional Adviser, and Association Council members. Mentoring conversations are confidential.

Sessions will be most useful to conference participants who:

  • Are strategic about their own development
  • Want to discuss a potential opportunity or a dilemma
  • Have specific educational or work needs
  • Are at a crossroad in their career - Career/life planning

These sessions cannot be booked online, if you would like to book a place please email with a preferred time and date events@anaesthetists.org. Read more about our mentoring programme.

How to publish a paper

1F05, 1G02, 1H02, 3J00 Domain 1, 2, 3  

Starting a project (whether clinical research, audit or a survey) can be daunting, especially if you've not done it before (and sometimes if you have!), and seeing it through to publication can also be a challenge. This workshop covers the whole process but focuses particularly on the points that journal reviewers and editors will be interested in when considering a manuscript submitted for publication. The workshop will be delivered in a friendly and non-threatening style by the editorial team of Anaesthesia, all with extensive experience of success (and failure!) in getting their work published and of reviewing papers written by others. It will be suitable for anaesthetists of all grades but particularly those who are considering, or currently involved in, such a project.

Learning objectives:

  • Research study design
  • How to present a manuscript / how journals deal with my submission 
  • How to analyse a paper
  • Discussion of sample problems from delegates
