Summary
Global Anaesthesia and ethical considerations when volunteering is a fascinating area of anaesthesia. The Association of Anaesthetists Trainee Committee and Global Anaesthesia, Surgery & Obstetric Collaboration (GASOC) are hosting a free joint webinar with 5 speakers with experience from around the world who have worked with various organisations including Medicines Sans Frontiers, Mothers of Africa, Mercy Ships and SAFE courses. The purpose of the webinar is to provide those watching with an insight into our speakers, the type of work they have been involved in and highlight opportunities of how to get involved for those with an interest in volunteering and global health. There will be short presentations then a panel discussion with questions from the audience.
