Managing Emergencies in Paediatric Anaesthesia (MEPA) is a single day course designed to equip anaesthetists with strategies for dealing with important emergencies in paediatric anaesthesia. The course is run in our high-fidelity simulation centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital, one of the leading centres for child healthcare in the world. Facilitated by experienced paediatric anaesthetists, the course provides a comprehensive update in paediatric anaesthesia and resuscitation and is aimed at anaesthetists who undertake occasional paediatric lists, provide out of hours care or who may be involved in the care of a sick child.
We run both MEPA for trainees (MEPA-T) and MEPA for consultants (MEPA-FC) courses at Great Ormond Street and both are approved for 5 CPD points by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Although similar in structure, each courses is designed for your level of knowledge and experience. We run 8 scenarios per course, each followed by a debrief and short presentation of the key learning points. All the scenarios we use are evidence based and have been ratified by the MEPA group.
