WOADS

Registrars day

The Wessex obstetric anaesthesia day in the simulator (WOADS) course is on Monday 30th Sept 2019 in the TEAMS centre simulation suite, QUAD building, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth.  The course is aimed at ST5 & post-final ST4 trainees although it is open to all grades of training from ST3 to ST7 (priority will be given to ST4 & ST5 trainees but also on a first come first served basis within a reasonable time frame).

 

The course will provide the opportunity to manage obstetric anaesthetic emergencies within the simulator and will cover technical and non-technical skills.  There is a large and enthusiastic faculty and we hope you will find it to be an excellent day.  Workplace based assessments can be completed and it can contribute to your higher obstetric training sign-off.
