Overview

The Anesthesia for Global Outreach Course is designed to assist anesthesia providers travelling to developing countries or austere environments for service or capacity development in anesthesia and critical care. It is intended primarily for anesthesia care providers, but is also relevant for all involved in peri-operative medicine and critical care. Course participants will have the opportunity to consider intellectual, technical, psychological, and ethical aspects of outreach anesthesia work in conditions that they are unlikely to have encountered in their training or daily practice.

This three-day course includes personal insights from faculty experienced in these environments, as well as current topics in global health related issues. Practical sessions include equipment use and maintenance, hands on simulation, and use of unfamiliar anesthesia techniques. Participants will have ample opportunities to engage with expert instructors who are experienced in working in a broad variety of contexts. Participants will also attend sessions on tropical disease, cross-cultural adaptation, and travel preparation.  In addition the program will enable anesthesia providers to better transfer their knowledge and build capacity when working in the low resource setting.

Target Audience

The target audience for this course includes medical  professionals planning to deliver anesthesia, peri-operative, and critical care in the low-resource settings. It is designed primarily for anesthesiologists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, anesthesiologist assistants, as well as other healthcare professionals working in the peri-operative setting.
