BJA and BJA Education Online
About BJA and BJA Education (formerly CEACCP)
The following journals are published by Oxford University Press and are available free of charge to Members of the College: The British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA), and BJA Education.
BJA remains the oldest and largest independent journal of anaesthesia and it became the journal of The College of Anaesthetists in 1990. The College was granted a Royal Charter in 1992. Although there are educational links between BJA and the College, the journal retains editorial independence. With an Impact Factor of 4.354, the BJA ranks an impressive third out of 28 journals in the Anesthesiology category.
BJA Education is a joint venture of the British Journal of Anaesthesia and the RCoA. The main purpose of BJA Education is the publication of material to support the continuous medical education and professional development of specialists in anaesthesia, critical care medicine and pain management.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with BJA Education/BJA and access to MCQs
BJA Education online offers an MCQ test for each article, for which a ‘pass’ generates a PDF certificate of completion which can be printed off or uploaded into the RCoA CPD Online Diary or another revalidation management system.
In order to access the MCQs you will need to be registered for online access with OUP as per steps 1 and 2 above and you can then visit bjaed.oxfordjournals.org and click on CME (Continuing Medical Education) to get started.
Reading BJA online also counts as an approved CPD personal activity and should be self-accredited on the basis of one CPD credit per hour. For further information, please contact email@example.com.
