Online Anaesthesia Education – the Current Landscape and How to Get Involved

The landscape of medical education is always evolving, especially in the modern age of fast-paced technologies and expanding digital resources. While E-learning has become prevalent amongst anesthesia trainees worldwide, looking for reliable and high-quality education content that is freely accessible can be challenging. This lecture aims to review the current advances and trends in anesthesia education, explore the differing perspectives between teachers and learners, and reflect on the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. We will also discuss the current open-access websites for anesthesia education and evaluate the quality of these online resources.
