is the name of game and the John Smith Airway Award 2022
This year, for the second time, the Association of Anaesthetists will host an Airway Webinar dedicated to Dr John Smith (deceased) with three keynote talks focusing on collaboration in medical research and practice, followed by a presentation to the winner of the award.
Collaboration between healthcare professionals, institutions and internationally is more and more important and this has been brought sharply onto focus by the COVID-19 pandemic. Collaborative research has led to many exciting developments recently at greater speed than previously - the three keynote speaker will discuss their experience with collaborating for the good of our patients.
In putting together this webinar, Dr Klein has consulted with the late Dr Smith’s widow, Professor Fang Gao from Birmingham. His wish, as articulated to her, was for an award to be presented by the Association of Anaesthetists, for the best paper about airway management (research, education and patient safety) published in Anaesthesia from authors from anywhere in the world.
The Top Airway paper will be voted on by the Board of the Association and the Editors and Associate Editors (formerly known as the International Advisory Panel) and the winner announced at the webinar - the winner will be invited to summarise their work and follow-up planned.
