As part of the evolution of the whole revalidation process, all specialist societies have been encouraged to develop CPD sections on their websites. The VASGBI CPD section is accessible from the Royal College of Anaesthetists website CPD matrix. It will doubtless evolve further but for now, members of the committee have written a skeletal outline of vascular anaesthesia under seven broad headings. In the future more detail may be added to these sections. It is our intention to devote approximately 50% of the Society's Annual Scientific Meeting to CPD topics.
If you have suggestions how this should evolve, or have other subjects which you think should be included in the CPD section then please contact us.
