Vital Anaesthesia Simulation Training (VAST)
Vital Anaesthesia Simulation Training (VAST) is a three-day multi-disciplinary programme reflecting practice at the district hospital in a low-resource setting.
Predominantly using low-fidelity simulation, the course centres on anaesthesia and resuscitation for obstetrics, paediatrics and trauma as well as safe general surgery, pre- and post-operative care, with an underlining focus on non-technical skills.
Targeted case-based discussions and skills stations further explore non-technical skills, trauma primary survey, difficult airway management, neonatal resuscitation, pain management and complex decision making.
