10th Anniversary of the College of Anaesthesiologists Simulation Training (CAST) programme On March 26th, 2020, CAST is celebrating 10 years since the delivery of the first simulation training day at the College. The College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland (CAI) were the first Irish Postgraduate Medical Training Body to incorporate simulation into their training programme. The first course was Anaesthesia Emergencies (AE) and was delivered on 26th March 2010 in a new specially-built Operating Theatre Simulation Suite. It was attended by a group of self-selected trainees interested in refreshing their knowledge, practicing their
This course focuses on intra-operative emergencies. It offers delegates the opportunity to practice managing rare, but potentially life-threatening scenarios in a safe setting, and introduces them to the concepts of crisis resource management. There is a strong focus on the impact of human factors in emergencies. This course is suitable for Anaesthesiologists registered for PCS with CAI.

The College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland has been running a Train the Trainer Simulation Instructors course since 2009. Initially developed with the view of training an adequate pool of instructors for College simulation courses, it has quickly become popular educational event well attended by a wide and diverse group of participants from the medical, nursing and other healthcare professionals who have strong interest in simulation-based education. More than 200 participants have participated to date. The course focuses on delivering debrief after simulation and is delivered through a blend of lectures,
This course focuses on rare, but clinically significant anaesthesiology-related emergencies. It offers opportunity for anaesthesiologists registered for PCS with CAI to practice managing potentially life-threatening scenarios in a safe setting. It allows delegates to refresh their knowledge on the clinical guidelines for anaesthesiology emergencies, and to explore the importance of non-technical skills in emergency situations.

A-CRISIS represents, as the title suggests, an opportunity for anaesthesiologists registered for PCS with CAI to refresh their knowledge as well as practice their technical and non-technical skills in a safe simulated clinical environment. The letter A in the title stands for Anaesthesiology, Assessment and Airway management but also for well-described principles of crisis management such as Attention, Awareness and Anticipation. Delegates will have the opportunity to share expertise as well as reflect on their own practice during post-simulation peer-facilitated debrief.
