Aberdeen Anaesthesia


Three Teaching Topics

Three Teaching Topics aims to promote ‘in theatre’ teaching activity through an enhanced educational culture that facilitates trainer and trainee engagement. The focus will be on basic science knowledge that will develop understanding and application of toics relevant for the FRCA examination.

Once a month, three topics will be posted on the Education channel of the Aberdeen Anaesthesia team for consultants, SAS doctors and ST7 trainees to use, with supporting reading materials included. Over the next month, the topics will be reviewed during ‘in theatre teaching’ by the trainer assessing the trainee’s knowledge, understanding and application of the highlighted topic.

One topic should be reviewed at a time with the trainee given the opportunity to do follow-up reading and consolidation of learning. Topics can be revisited over the month so that the trainee and trainer become fluent in each topic.
