Competency-based training

Over the coming months, BARNA will be developing competency based training packages for the recovery team.

These standards will include….

  • Feedback from our members and clinical leads in the development of this training would be welcomed to ensure the packages developed meet the needs of the whole team. If you would like to offer suggestions in the development of these packages, please contact us
  • The NHS Scotland have produced a recognised competency document for Anaesthetic Assistants and whilst BARNA is developing its own competencies, members are advised to follow these guidelines.
  • BARNA have developed an airways presentation which is available for members of the association to access free of charge
  • BARNA together with the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) develop a national competency document for "UK National Core Competencies for Post-anaesthesia Care 2013". You'll find the published document in this link.
