About this webinar

Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control, this webinar will have to be postponed until July.  The exact date is yet to be confirmed, as soon as it is we will add it to the page.  Bookings can still be made for the new date, and don't worry, if you can't make it live you will get the recording so do still book.

Human factors is a scientific discipline that accepts and understands that human performance is liable to fall in the high pressure situations that we may experience while working in operating theatres. Human factors strategies can help us as anaesthetists and theatre team members to optimise our performance under pressure, and help us and our teams to move back into a ‘zone of flow’ when pressure rises. Anaesthesia is a ‘team sport’, and the whole team needs to be aware of such strategies to enable them to be fully effective. 

Please join us for a joint webinar discussing this topic, with representatives from the APA, Association of Anaesthetists, AfPP and College of ODPs.

Login will be available from 17:50, but the broadcast will not start until 18:00.

Joining the webinar 

You can log in from the comfort of your own home, your office, or any where else that is convenient. All you need is a decent internet connection and a quiet room. If you are unable to attend live do not worry, you will be automatically sent the recording 24 hours after the webinar whether you attend or not. 

Please ignore questions about access and dietary requirements during the booking process. Joining details will be sent automatically via email - please ensure the email we have for you is correct, and remember to check for updates in that email account in the week prior to the webinar.
