Submission to guidelines for the provision of anaesthesia care to children


Advocacy Reports and submissions 2019 reports and submissions Submission to guidelines for the provision of anaesthesia care to children

Summary

Date: 1 April 2019

The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) recently released a draft statement on the provision of anaesthesia care of children. The draft broadens the scope and delineates the principles for the delivery of care to all children, in all locations, by all anaesthetists.
 
The RACGP is concerned that the requirements, especially around training and educations, in the guidelines may negatively affect general practitioner anaesthetists.
