GASOC Journal Club


The Global Anaesthetic, Surgical and Obstetric Collaboration (GASOC) are holding their first journal club of 2018 on Monday 5th February. GASOC is a UK based collaborative, primarily for trainee anaesthetics, surgeons and obstetricians, which was created following the release of the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery.

On the 5th February, three venues in London, Glasgow and Oxford will come together over a live link to discuss two papers. The first is a systematic review and meta-analysis on anaesthesia related mortality in low and middle income countries. The second is a study which investigated the benefits of a coaching-based WHO safe surgical checklist programme in Uttar Pradesh, India.

You can also follow the discussion live via the GASOC Youtube page and comment if you have have a Youtube channel.
