MEPA-C - 20th August 2024

Managing Emergencies in Paediatric Anaesthesia - Consultants

We are one of the global centres working with the MEPA organisation to deliver this world renown anaesthetic course.

Course overview

MEPA is a 1-day simulation-based training course which was designed as a collaborative effort between paediatric anaesthetists from across the globe.

The course is run in multiple specialist paediatric centres across the globe, including at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH), and consists of a series of peer-reviewed scenarios with supplemental standardized teaching presentations.

MEPA aims to equip candidates with strategies for dealing with common emergent scenarios in paediatric anaesthesia, along with the non-technical skills that are necessary for their effective management.

This course equips candidates to deal with common scenarios that may be encountered by anyone anaesthetising a child anywhere in the world.

Learn more about MEPA on their website.
