Welsh Virtual Anaesthetic Journal Club

The virtual journal club is set up and run by trainees for trainees. It takes place via teams on the 1st Tuesday of every month between 12.30 and 13.30. The link is circulated to all trainees via HEIW prior to the session. Dr Sharmila Khot kindly acts as consultant facilitator for these sessions.

We welcome presenters of any grade and are happy to help you pick out a suitable paper in an area of interest - we have a list of suggestions from consultants in their areas of interest also.

You are welcome to present a literature review to journal club which is a higher ARCP requirement. You will of course be provided with formal feedback for the presentation. If you would like to present please contact either Anna Roberts or Marmar Htyn: anna5084@doctors.org.uk or marmar.htyn@gmail.com.

Journal club works best as an interactive session and so is not currently recorded. Papers which have been discussed before are detailed in the following link.
