Essential Anaesthesia

Essential Anaesthesia is an on-line e-learning programme which is a natural progression from the popular Safer Anaesthesia From Education (e-SAFE).

It is aimed at anaesthesia providers in poorly resourced countries who may be undertaking additional training, such as nurse anaesthetists and clinical officers, as well as medically trained anaesthetists and anaesthesiologists.

The resource includes the e-SAFE modules in the ‘basic folder’ and a further 150 e-learning sessions handpicked from the Royal College of Anaesthetists e-LA platform and from e-PAIN by experienced anaesthetists and anaesthesiologists from all over the world. The resource particularly focuses on paediatrics, obstetrics, critical care, pain, diseases related to anaesthesia and related topics such as X-rays and ECGs.

These sessions are ideal for anaesthesia providers who are planning to set up a critical care unit or pain management service.

In addition, the resource contains 10 sessions for anaesthetists working in ‘austere’ environments or going on humanitarian missions, as well as an extensive e-library and access to other resource.

The programme can be used for teaching, training, self-learning and revision and can be accessed here .
