Airway Matters

University College London via FutureLearn

Overview

Develop safe airway management strategies for your patients

The safe management of a patient’s airway is one of the most challenging and complex tasks undertaken by a health professional - complications can result in devastating outcomes.

How can we improve safety, prevent complications, and be prepared to manage difficulties when they arise?

How, in a crisis, can we ensure that human and technical resources are best utilised?

Our course will provide answers to these key questions and help you develop strategies to improve patient safety in your area of practice, discussing safe airway management in patient groups and multidisciplinary clinical settings.

This course, endorsed by the Difficult Airway Society, is for all members of the multidisciplinary team who provide airway support to patients, or care for patients with a compromised airway. This includes anaesthetists, anaesthesia associates, operating department practitioners, nurses, physiotherapists, adult and paediatric intensivists, prehospital and emergency medicine physicians, paramedics, head and neck surgeons and members of the cardiac arrest team.

The course is in English and the learning outcomes are relevant to UK based and international colleagues.

Health professionals might find the Certificate of Achievement for this course useful for providing evidence of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or commitment to their career.
