The Royal Collage of Anesthetists (RCoA) are re-evaluating in the face of a global crisis; where do you stand in the forthcoming debate?
This piece, chaired by Monty Mythen and Mike Grocott, originally closed EBPOM Dingle. It’s a much needed full and frank discussion regarding the realities of non-physician anaesthesia providers; could they be a realistic solution to the global staffing crisis we have heard about in recent years? It’s a perfect storm which combines ‘mass retirement’, COVID-19 measures and the related delay in elective surgery. When the RCoA grapple publicly with a debate like this there’s a responsibility for anaesthesia practitioners to consider it as well.
