Departments of Anaesthesia that have chosen to employ Anaesthesia Associates, as part of a team approach to service provision, have been able to demonstrate benefits from an early stage.
These have included:
There are multiple resources and examples throughout the website to help employers and potential employers realise the full benefits the role can being to their patients.
There is no published evidence that the provision of anaesthesia using a team approach reduces the safety or efficacy of patient care.
For further information or evidence of the potential benefits of the anaesthesia team approach, refer to the DoH toolkit document.
