The Intensive and Critical Care Medicine (ICCM) Committee of the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) is conducting a survey among Anesthesiologists who have recently completed their training (between 2018-2020). The study is registered with clinicaltrials.gov (Identifier no: NCT05007704). We will be grateful if you participate in this survey. The survey will take about ten minutes to complete.
Survey Title : Competencies Required by Anesthesiologists Managing Critically ill Medical and Surgical Patients In An Intensive Care Unit: A WFSA Survey
Critical Care Medicine (CCM) has emerged as an independent specialty over the last few decades. Anesthesiologists being perioperative physicians, often practice CCM full time or part-time. Deficiencies have been noted by experts in the Anesthesiology training in certain competencies required for the management of critically ill medical and surgical patients in the ICU. This is often compounded by considerable variation in the training curriculum of the Anesthesiologists based on the geographical region. The Intensive & Critical Care Medicine Committee of the World Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists (WFSA), has developed a preliminary survey of recently qualified Anesthesiologists, to review the existing competencies for CCM in the Anesthesiology curriculum across the globe. The results of this survey will be used to identify the gaps and additional competencies required for Anesthesiologists to practice Critical Care in ICU through expert consensus, using a Delphi process.
Who should attempt the survey?
This survey should be attempted by those who have COMPLETED ANESTHESIOLOGY TRAINING (not including Internship or Fellowships) IN THE LAST THREE YEARS (between 2018-2021). You may attempt the survey if eligible or ask another eligible Anesthesiologist to respond.
