Continuing Education in Anaesthesia, Critical Care, and Pain

M J Overton, N A Smith
The role of anaesthetists has expanded and evolved to include critical care, perioperative and pain medicine and general clinical skills, as well as operating theatre-based clinical anaesthesia. Across Australia and New Zealand, these topics are taught to varying degrees, however no uniform curriculum or standardisation exists between universities. In this study, we used a Delphi technique to develop consensus-based priorities to guide medical educators when reviewing and implementing student anaesthesia curricula...

The one-year Diploma in Anaesthetics (DA) was the first postgraduate programme offered by the then Faculty of Medicine of The University of the West Indies (UWI). It was instituted in 1966, when the need for trained physician anaesthetists became paramount. Over 200 physicians have been awarded the DA which was discontinued in 1994. The four-year Doctor of Medicine in Anaesthetics [DM (Anaesthetics)] was commenced in 1974 and continues to train most of the region's physician anaesthetists. The majority of the 119 graduates (as of December 2011) are providing invaluable services to the people of the Caribbean...

Anaesthetists in the Defence Medical Services spend most of their clinical time in the National Health Service and deploy on military operations every 6-18 months. The deployed operational environment has a number of key differences particularly as there is more severe trauma than an average UK hospital and injury patterns are mainly due to blast or ballistics. Equipment may also be unfamiliar and there is an expectation to be conversant with specific standard operating procedures. Anaesthetists must be ready to arrive and work in an established team and effective non-technical skills (or human factors) are important to ensure success...

The specialty of anaesthesia developed because of its fundamental contribution to health care, including the prevention of pain from surgery, respiratory, and critical care medicine, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and pain medicine. Through these contributions anaesthesia became an important component of the medical profession. To continue our position in medicine, our intellectual foundation must be maintained and augmented mainly via research. No matter what role they play, all members of an anaesthetic department must contribute to the past intellectual development of anaesthesia as a basis for outlining the future approaches in research, including basic science, applied, transitional, clinical, educational and economic research...

Recent advances have reduced the risks of anaesthesia to a virtually immeasurable level. However, if the specialty wishes to continue to foster support, it will require active promotion of the benefits, not hazards, of our practice. The few published surveys of the image of the anaesthetist show that the public poorly understands either our background training or education, or the responsibility we bear in their care. Our medical and surgical colleagues, and even some practising anaesthetists, hold a view of our specialty that is subservient and less than flattering...
