The quest to be family friendly 

The challenge; how does the Anaesthesia Heritage centre develop a families programme from scratch?

In this brainstorming session, drop in and help the heritage team answer the following questions:

1) How might we develop fun and engaging workshops which appeal to families?
2) How might we let families know who we are and that we can offer a high quality family workshop?

Our guiding principles for the session:

- We will not pass judgement (both negative and positive)
-Think big, please don't hold back with your ideas - all ideas are good
-You can build on the ideas of others (we will explore everything)
-We'll have one conversation at a time
-It's quantity over quality at this stage

How to access the workshop:  This session is free to all delegates on a first come, first served basis.  The zoom link will be available on the WSM platform on the day of the workshop under the breakout tab. 

What does the public know about anaesthesia? - A discussion 

The Association's Advocacy and Campaigns team has been working with a leading market research and polling company to gain insights into the public's views  towards knowledge  about anaesthesia.  The team will be presenting the findings of a poll of 2,000 people that took place in December, where people were asked what they knew about the role of an anaesthetist and for their views on a number of issues facing the speciality. We will then lead a discussion, inviting views on how these findings  can help shape efforts to raise the profile of anaesthesia and further the Association's various campaigning aims.

Anaesthesia journal workshop - How to publish a paper


Getting a paper published is hard work with potential pitfalls at every step along the way.  For starters, the topic has to be interesting, the design perfect and the manuscript as a whole should be communicated precisely.  

Join the Editors of Anaesthesia and Anaesthesia Reports for this free workshop, which covers all aspects of designing a project and writing a paper for submission for publication. Learn from the mistakes of others and save yourself time and effort with insider tips from the experts. Ask the questions about your own projects and papers and find out what is likely to be accepted and how to do it!
