Next NAW – 22-23 April 2020
NAW is all about difficult airway management                                           

NAW has provided a platform for difficult airway training since 2004. From airway assessment to fibreoptic intubation on an anaesthetised patient, all is taught in 2 days.

We teaching extensive hands-on practical skills including animal model FONA.

NAW attracts national and international delegates.

For individual attention the delegates number is limited to 8 doctors and 4 anaesthetic nurses/ODPs.

NAW is a DAS approved course and is awarded 10 CPD points by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

NAW is suitable for all grades of anaesthetists, we recommend at least one year of anaesthetics experience before attending the workshop.

NAW is also suitable for anaesthetic nurses/ODPs and other specialties like A&E, intensive care respiratory physicians who want to learn advance airway techniques.

Non UK delegates are also welcome. If you are not registered with GMC then please provide a valid copy of your medical council registration. We will also need proof of your Hep B status.
