GASagain is structured to provide strategies for managing a return to work. Not only are there simulation scenarios to refresh your skills, but there is also a series of workshops underpinned by short relevant lectures to update you on the latest in the world of anaesthesia. The day is about providing essential updates (i.e. resuscitation, patient safety checks) whilst giving you the opportunity to build your confidence managing common and unusual emergency scenarios again. The course has limited spaces to provide individual attention. We will individualise the scenarios to cater to the grade of the anaesthetist. We will provide you with a course booklet prior to the course (via email) with important algorithms, articles, references. What to expect from GASagain • Confidence building (the main aim of the course) • Revision of algorithms (Resus – adult and paediatric, DAS) • Real time physiology simulation with medium/high fidelity • Chance to practice non-technical skills (communication, team work) • Insight into error and understanding your limitations (fatigue, anxiety on return to work) • Debriefing sessions (group sharing of knowledge, experimental and reflective learning) • All the above is done in a non-threatening environment without real patients and hence, no ability to cause harm. Simulation and workshop topics include: • Airway • ICU • Pre-assessment • Paediatrics • Obstetrics • A&E Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
