A transatlantic perspective.

This conversation explores the extended role of the anaesthetist, brought about partly by perioperative care but more widely because of societal changes. Practitioners face a dilemma; how do you best impact value based care, as a specialist, when multidisciplinary approaches are becoming essential?

In the UK, The Royal College of Anaesthetists, are working on this very issue; find out how they are becoming part of conversations regarding public health and modifiable risk factors, as relate to a patient’s lifestyle choices and pathology.

The transatlantic perspective is essential here, how do organisations like EBPOM USA advocate these ideas within an American funding model?

No matter which side of the Atlantic you live on there’s a very real debate to be had about training students; the job of the anaesthetist has fundamentally altered in recent times. Furthermore, how do those already practising update their skills and stay with the times?

Monty Mythen and Joff Lacey presenting with their guests Liam Brennan, President of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, and Sol Aronson, a tenured professor at Duke University and Executive Vice Chairman in the Department of Anesthesiology.
