University College of London (UCL) is launching a MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) called Perioperative Medicine in Action. This is a free online course which has been designed over the past year with UCL and recently had content approval from the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Why a MOOC on perioperative medicine
The organisers have brought together an internationally recognised, expert faculty to introduce the key concepts behind perioperative medicine to the entire multidisciplinary team. By providing high quality free education in perioperative medicine, hopefully these principles will be widely adopted, ultimately leading to safer surgery and improved outcomes for the high-risk surgical patient. The course is endorsed and being promoted by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
