EAAA President, Janet Pickett, has this week published volume 2 of the newsletter. The newsletter includes a review of the 2015 meeting, including the Harold Youngman Prizewinning abstract from Kim Wild, and details of the forthcoming 2016 Meeting.
Newsletter – Volume 2
Registration for the 2016 meeting is now open and the deadline for prize entries is fast approaching – remember the first prize is awarded the Harold Youngman Medal and £500.
We are delighted to be able to publish the 2016 Core Topics Meeting Programme. The educational programme has been designed around the feedback received at the 2015 meeting in terms of format and content. RCoA CPD approval has been awarded.
Thursday afternoon sees a new focussed clinical update session addressing core areas of CPD for the general anaesthetist such as obstetrics, an update on hip fracture anaesthesia (SNAP2) and anaesthesia for amputation surgery.
On Friday will be the ever popular Harold Youngman Trainee Prize session and after a successful inauguration at last year’s meeting the FOAM Film Fest @FOAMfilmfest returns.
President of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, the East of England’s own Liam Brennan @drgas51 will be speaking on Friday afternoon on Morale & Wellbeing, a very fitting subject for the trainee-focussed day of the meeting given ongoing issues around the junior doctors contract.
Trade support is already being pledged and we hope this will be another successful meeting.
Registration is now open; see the programme and registration pages for details.

The Harold Youngman Prize is open to all medical students, FY doctors and non-consultant grade anaesthetists in the East of England. If you have an anaesthesia related project please consider entering it. If you are a college tutor or educational supervisor look out for projects your trainees are conducting – with a little encouragement they could be winning the 2016 prize.
Details of the competition will be released in due course but in the meantime put the meeting dates in your diary – 10th & 11th November 2016 – and start thinking about what work you can submit. Any enquiries relating to the Harold Youngman Prize can be directed to email@example.com
