Real World Anaesthesia Course (RWAC)

This is the 29th Australasian course and the fourth to be held in New Zealand.

The aim of RWAC is to prepare anaesthetists for work in low- and middle-income countries (‘the real world’) in a variety of humanitarian aid situations.

The course consists of a series of interactive lectures, case-based discussions, practical equipment sessions and in-theatre teaching of drawover anaesthesia.
A simulation session is also planned.

Some topics include:

• Drawover equipment
• Oxygen supplies
• Ketamine and halothane
• Equipment maintenance
• Obstetric and paediatric dilemmas
• Psychological adaptation
• Ethical dilemmas
• Tropical medicine

The number of participants is limited to 18 to maximise interaction and hands-on learning. To participate in theatre teaching sessions, you will need to be registered or eligible for registration in New Zealand.

The course cost is NZ$3,500 (including GST) and is payable if your application is successful.
