Trainer Award

A new award was launched for the 25th Anniversary year to celebrate excellent training in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine.
Anaesthesia Trainee Representative Group (ATRG) members were invited with local trainees to nominate up to three local trainers for an award from each school of anaesthesia.
Trainers were assessed by the 25th Anniversary Organising Committee based on:
  • their willingness and ability to share skills, knowledge and expertise
  • their enthusiasm and positive attitude
  • ability to promote lifelong learning in trainees and others
  • providing constructive feedback and guidance
  • motivating all around them by setting a good example
  • listening to and valuing the opinions of trainees
  • having the respect of colleagues and others throughout the organisation
