PACT Paed Anaes for Core Trainees - 18th Jan 2019

PACT Paediatric Anaesthesia for Core Trainees

Friday 18th January 2019 0800-1730

Stoke Mandeville Hospital Sim Suite

Paediatric Anaesthesia is one of the most exciting subspecialties within anaesthesia. The RCOA curriculum clearly defines learning outcomes for core trainees, however many feel a significant degree of discomfort in managing paediatric cases and stabilising sick children. The PACT course aims to enhance the training core trainees receive in paediatric anaesthesia in the region thus improving their confidence. PACT aims to draw parallels to similar courses run in the deanery aimed at core trainees such as RIACT, Obstetrics anaesthesia for core trainees and the regional anaesthesia passport. 


Summary of Aims


·     Course aimed at anaesthetic core trainees only 

·     Run bi-annually 

·     Course mapped to key learning outcomes in core curriculum

·     Enhance the standard of paediatric anaesthesia training for core trainees in the Oxford school of anaesthesia.

·     Improving the confidence of core trainees in paediatric anaesthesia enabling them to gain more from their intermediate paediatric anaesthesia training

·     Equipping trainees with essential basic skills and knowledge to manage paediatric cases through focussed and dedicated training




·     Deanery funded (approved) and a paediatric course is now ‘essential’ for core trainees


·     Min 8 pers

·     Max 12 pers
