WSFA Survey – for the attention of recently qualified anesthesiology colleagues
‘Competencies required by anesthesiologists managing critically ill medical and surgical patients in an intensive care unit: A WFSA survey’
The Intensive and Critical Care Medicine (ICCM) Committee of the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) is conducting a survey among recently trained Anesthesiologists (registered with clinicaltrials.gov Identifier no: NCT05007704). Deficiencies have been noted by experts in the anesthesiology training in certain competencies required for the management of the critically ill patient in the ICU. This survey is designed to review existing competencies for CCM in the anesthesiology curriculum across the globe.
Who should attempt the survey? Those who have COMPLETED ANESTHESIOLOGY TRAINING IN THE LAST THREE YEARS (between 2018-2021). It will take around 10 minutes to complete.
Link to the survey is here.
