Oxford University Global Surgery Group - Hilary Term 2019 Meeting

Thursday 28th March 2019 6.00-7.30pm Osler House

Speakers: Rebecca Inglis, Tony Jefferis and Shakira Morar

1.       Trauma Care in Laos: The unintended consequences of short training courses: Rebecca Inglis

Rebecca is an intensive care registrar who has spent the last two years in the Laos People's Democratic Republic, co-designing a training course for doctors and nurses caring for ICU patients. Her work has focused on critically ill trauma patients in particular, understanding why this patient group has such a high mortality in this setting. She discusses how her observational work has revealed some unexpected answers.

 

2. A "Useful(?) Idiot" Goes to Syria: Tony Jefferis

Tony Jefferis, Consultant ENT surgeon, discusses his controversial trip to Syria  with a Medical Education Charity. Tony has been actively involved in postgraduate medical education within and outside of the UK for many years.  Although his aims for this trip were to investigate the medical problems facing the country and how we can help, the British Press felt otherwise!!

 

3. Poetry for Peace - The Cracked Jug: Shakira Morar

Winner of the Oxford Poetry for Peace competition. Her poem, The  Cracked Jug, inspired by a 4,000 year-old Mesopotamian jug in the Ashmolean Museum, was transformed into a short film (by Suzanne Cohen) by The Poetry Society and was unveiled for World Poetry Day. Shakira’s poem imagines the jug first being used by a girl to collect water before a cataclysmic event strikes her village, leaving the pot with a crack that would stay with it for the next 4,000 years.  The poem been translated into Arabic and has been published in the Poetry for Peace 2016 Anthology by the Foreign Office.

 

We look forward to seeing you there!

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

 

Funding

 

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

Capacity 

·     Min 8 pers

·     Max 12 pers
