How will the profession evolve as the years pass? Change is inevitable and the direction of change is becoming clearer but how will we adapt to the new roles and requirements we can see coming towards us in the near future? Will Anaesthetists be able to tackle the leadership role which many expect to become commonplace?

Also, what is the “technological singularity”? Should we be concerned about it? Finally, some thoughts on what it really means to work in healthcare, how are we different to the super computers we imagine doing our work in years to come?

Presented by Joff Lacey with Mike Swart, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Critical Care Medicine at Torbay Hospital and advisor to the UK Department of Health for the Enhanced Recovery Programme.
