Drs Michael Cooper, Charles Roger Goucke and David Pescod were each given the award based on their service to medicine through specific projects in the field of anaesthesia, pain management and Australia-Mongolia relations respectively.

RG 2 Photo 1914bMichael G COOPER photoDavid Pescod photo• Dr David Pescod has been awarded the Officer of the Order of Australia for distinguished service to medicine, and to Australia-Mongolia relations, particularly through the provision of surgical and anaesthetic care, and to health education and standards.

• Dr Michael Cooper has been awarded the Member of the Order of Australia for significant service to medicine in the field of anaesthesia as a clinician, teacher, mentor and historian.

• Dr Charles Roger Goucke has been awarded the Member of the Order of Australia for significant service to medicine in the field of pain management as a clinician, academic and mentor, and to professional societies.

The Order of Australia was established in 1975 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The awards ceremony will occur in September or October at Government House in each state - usually bestowed by the Governor of each individual state.

WFSA and partners provide e-learning bursaries to hundreds of anaesthesia providers

Earlier this year the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA), the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) and the Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) announced that we would offer hundreds of bursaries for anaesthesia providers from low resource settings to progress their anaesthesia training through access to the Essential Anaesthesia online course. After receiving an overwhelming number of applications from around the world, we are proud to announce that more than 350 anaesthesia providers from 65 countries have been awarded the bursary. The majority of the recipients are public sector workers in low income countries, where the need for updated education materials is highest.

EssentialAnaesthesia CourseOverviewThe course, developed by the RCoA and the WFSA, provides a quality-assured e-learning programme designed for anaesthesia providers in countries with limited resources. Highly interactive; with videos, animations and questions, Essential Anaesthesia contains 150 e-learning sessions handpicked from the RCoA’s award-winning e-Learning Anaesthesia (e-LA) and e-PAIN platforms. The course covers paediatrics, obstetrics, critical care, as well as anaesthesia in humanitarian settings and challenging environments. The programme can be used for teaching, training, self-learning and revision.

CEO of the WFSA, Julian Gore-Booth explained, "Essential Anaesthesia targets anaesthesia providers in low resource environments where the demands on both physicians and non-physicians are often extremely difficult and where little is available by way of CME / CPD. This course sets out to help these providers improve their knowledge and practice and ultimately contribute towards our shared vision of universal access to safe anaesthesia."

Professor Ellen O’Sullivan, Chair of the Global Partnerships Committee and Council Member, RCoA added, “We are delighted that this initiative has been so successful, and that through this collaboration, the Essential Anaesthesia resource has been made more accessible. We are confident that the resource focus on key topics, including Paediatrics, obstetrics and pain management will be beneficial to those providing anaesthesia in a low resource setting, meeting the aims of our Global Partnerships Strategy.”

The WFSA hopes that access to these high-quality materials will improve the theoretical knowledge base of anaesthesia providers around the world, who will then be able to share this information with their colleagues, and will ultimately improve patient care and safe anaesthesia globally.

The WFSA have already received numerous positive responses from the beneficiaries of the bursary for the Essential Anaesthesia online programme. We look forward to continuing to hear about their learning experience and hope to hear of the positive impact this initiative will have on improved knowledge and practice in anaesthesia care. Demonstrating positive impact will increase the likelihood of online learning initiatives such as this for those with limited access to education materials in the future.
