About this webinar

This educational webinar will examine the role and benefits of Anaesthesia Associates within a Department of Anaesthesia. Anaesthesia Associates as independent practitioners work within an anaesthetic team and can make a valuable contribution to patient care. Anaesthesia Associates can help with reducing operating theatre downtime, leading to increased throughput on operating lists and improved theatre utilisation. They may play also a role in pre-operative assessment; provision of sedation; cardiac arrest teams; may prove beneficial in supporting education for colleagues and students; and are often engaged in local research projects and audits. These diverse roles will be examined by the panel in a series of talks and a question and answer session - your chance to ask about the impact of AAs in practice and on training.

Login will be available from 17:45, but the broadcast will not start until 18:00.

This webinar is free to those who are members of the Association.

Membership of the Association is £10 per annum for Anaesthesia Associate (students) and £112 per annum for Anaesthesia Associates, and you can join here.
