Supported by an experienced international faculty from around the world, the Tenth Annual Anesthesia for Global Outreach Course is designed to assist anesthesia providers working in developing countries or austere environments for service and capacity development in anesthesia 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 also attend sessions on tropical disease, cross-cultural adaptation, and travel preparation. There are ample opportunities for participants to engage with the expert faculty who have experience working in a broad variety of contexts. In addition the program will enable anesthesia providers to better transfer their knowledge and build capacity when working in the low resource setting.
