RA-UK ASM Catch up now available.
We are pleased to announce that the catch up stream of the hugely successful RA-UK virtual ASM is now available.
Over the next few weeks, the content will be split into individual talks, but for now each day is available in its entirety.
AGM Date 25th May.
Following a very successful hybrid Annual Scientific Meeting in Sheffield, we propose to hold the RA-UK Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 25th May. We’re pleased to be able to report a record number of delegates at the recent ASM, including a large number of virtual, international attendees. At the AGM, we propose to amend the RA-UK constitution to allow these international colleagues, along with retired members, to join our society and to access our meetings, guidelines and educational resources.
We are also delighted to confirm the creation of the RA-UK Research Network. This will be Chaired by Dr Rachel Kearns, Honorary Clinical Associate Professor, Glasgow, with Dr Jono Womack representing the RA-UK Board as Deputy Chair. It is proposed that Dr Kearns will be co-opted onto the RA-UK Board for an initial period of 3 years.
The amended RA-UK Constitution is available to view here on the website and a Zoom link will be made available to access the Annual General Meeting.
We hope everyone will agree these are very exciting times for RA-UK and would like to thank all our members for their continued support.
New algorithm for suspected neurological injury.
RAUK in collaboration with BOA has developed an algorithm to guide the management of unexpected or persistent neurological symptoms after peripheral nerve blocks and surgery. This algorithm intends to help with risk stratification and early recognition of patient requiring urgent attention.
