In place of an ASM, the committee of the British Society of Orthopaedic Anaesthetists decided to offer a series of virtual lectures, Q&A sessions and free papers between September – November 2020 to ensure that all doctors could access educational content safely and at a time to suit them.

Now, the committee is proud to announce that the lectures from the 2020 Virtual Event Series are now available to view on-demand. To access the presentations, please register your details to access the site.


We have changed the face of this meeting in recent years to be inclusive of the various daily elements tackled by any anaesthetist including Peri-operative medicine.

We boast a remarkably cost effective £:CEPD value at this meeting. Additionally we aim that our educational activities put the patient at the centre of them. Unfortunately, in the UK we have a specialty centred approach to anaesthetics when in fact it should probably be a body systems approach. We try to reflect the latter.

Over the last 8 years we have actively sought to tackle the range of patient groups in our meetings leading us to inaugurate workshops and session as titled below:

Workshops:

  • Cell salvage
  • Regional anaesthesia(upper and lower limb)
  • Radiology for the anaesthetist
  • Emergency tracheostomy and fibre optic intubation
  • Pensions and the NHS

Sessions:

  • Improving practice
  • Radiology and regional anaesthesia
  • Perioperative Medicine
  • Registrar prize presentation
  • Critical care and orthopaedics
  • Extremes of care.
