AnSafe meeting Thursday 15th March 2018

(Posted on behalf of Alison Herdman)

Dear All,

There will be three AnSafe Meetings instead of two in 2018. This is because:

1) All the other craft groups meet at least 3-4 times per year

2) We have so much to talk about we need three meetings a year to get through it all.

The first meeting is to be held at 6pm on Thursday March 15th at the SAS Rooms in Minnie St, Southport. 

Please email James Derrick or myself for Pindara issues for the Agenda, Stuart Green or Adrian Skidmore for GCPH issues, and Nick Hogan for any Paediatric issues in either hospital.

AnSafe has its own WebAirs reporting and we go through all incidents reported (anonymously) at the meetings. You can sign up with AnSafe webAirs by going to the Gcape website and following the prompts. Please share your near misses for our communal benefit.

Please remember that AnSafe is classified as an Anaesthetic craft group/M&M Meeting by both Pindara and the GCPH. As part of the accreditation process VM0s are expected to attend 50% of these meetings. CME points can be claimed for your attendance. Please check on the Gcape website after the meeting for details.

Best wishes

Alison Herdman
