Purpose of review:
Patient safety is topical today. Competent professionals are necessary to keep anesthesia care safe, andteaching trainees is an important element in safety work. The purpose of this review is to present the latestresearch on anesthesia training and trainees.
Most trainees of today aim for excellence, for which personal qualities are as important as knowledge andskills. The definition of excellence is the first subject covered here. Trainees of today can train manyprocedural skills in a simulators setting, a step forward for patient safety. Several studies about simulatortraining are reported. A dimension of competence that has received much attention during the last years isanesthesiologists’ nontechnical skills. Studies on anesthesiologists’ nontechnical skills as a valuable tool forassessing trainees’ progress in nontechnical skills are presented.
Much research about anesthesia training concerns simulator training and assessment of trainees’competence. More research is needed to understand the process of learning anesthesia.
