What is a seminar
The Association is the UK’s leading provider of postgraduate education for all pathways into Anaesthesia. The Association’s seminar programme features leading experts in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine presenting the latest information and thinking on a variety of key anaesthesia topics. Our seminars are designed to focus on a specific field of interest within anaesthesia and help to build on specialist interests. They offer an intimate learning environment, with a maximum of 50 delegates attending each. Keeping the numbers low encourages delegate and faculty interaction.
About this seminar
This seminar is the inaugural event for the UK Perioperative Allergy Network. We are open to anaesthetists, allergists and immunologists and we invite you to come and meet others working in this field, share experience and learning, and hear about new developments.
You will find out more about aims of the network and how it can help you deliver joined-up care in your region and beyond. We want to hear your views on the direction of the network and what you think is important for improving care for this patient group.
The day will consist of panel and audience discussions, with workshops in the afternoon tackling some of the more challenging areas of perioperative allergy. All specialities at all levels of seniority are welcome, and no prior experience of perioperative allergy is required.
Come along and get involved!
