• 2021 Effective Management of Anaesthetic Crises

    Department of Anaesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine
  • Who should attend?

    EMAC is a mandatory course for all ANZCA trainees and is also accredited for Continuing Professional Development points and emergency response activities for Fellows and Provisional Fellows by the College. Anaesthetic trainees and GP anaesthetic trainees must have completed a minimum of one year of accredited training prior to attending the course. It is expected that the participants on the course would be capable of providing anaesthesia to a simple emergency case such as an appendicectomy without direct supervision.


    Why complete the course?

    The course introduces anaesthetists to the Non-Technical Skills required for managing clinical emergencies. It provides strategies for using the available resources to lead and coordinate team activities and communicate effectively during emergencies.

    In addition, EMAC revises the technical skills and requirements for handling common and life threatening situations during anaesthetic care. The course updates the participants on emergency management procedures and discusses the practical application of clinical algorithms during time-pressured events.
