11th Annual Anesthesia for Global Outreach Course is organized by Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School (HMS) and will be held from Oct 09 - 11, 2020 at Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. 

Target Audience:
The target audience for this course includes medical professionals planning to deliver anesthesia, peri-operative, and critical care in the low-resource settings. It is designed primarily for anesthesiologists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, anesthesiology assistants, as well as other healthcare professionals working in the peri-operative setting.

The Anesthesia for Global Outreach Course is designed to assist anesthesia providers traveling to developing countries or austere environments for service or capacity development in anesthesia and critical care. It is intended primarily for anesthesia care providers, but is also relevant for all involved in peri-operative medicine 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 have ample opportunities to engage with expert instructors who are experienced in working in a broad variety of contexts. Participants will also attend sessions on tropical disease, cross-cultural adaptation, and travel preparation. In addition the program will enable anesthesia providers to better transfer their knowledge and build capacity when working in the low resource setting.

Upon completion, participants will be able to: 

• Recognize and demonstrate the knowledge of anesthetic techniques likely to be encountered in low resource settings.
• Describe the preparations needed to safely work in austere conditions specific to the practice of anesthesia including intellectual, technical, ethical, and attitudinal factors.
• Discuss and demonstrate various means of delivering educational programs in resource poor environments such as the use of simulation to practice clinical and technical skills and care delivery.
• Discuss the psychological and ethical adaptations that occur when working in an austere practice environment.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
