Survey for Anaesthesia providers

Anaesthesia providers play a critical role in infection related care in the peri-operative pathway from surgical prophylaxis to post-operative care. However, the availability and roles of both physician anaesthetists and other trained anaesthesia providers is variable globally.
We are conducting a survey to better understand the resources, the scope and extent of anaesthesia providers globally across high, low- and middle-income settings. This will provide a baseline for developing bespoke and context specific interventions to optimise interdisciplinary infection related care in surgical pathways.

The survey is intended for Anaesthesia providers only.
This survey is anonymous, which means that the information you provide will remain confidential and cannot be traced back to you. The survey will only take ten minutes to complete.

We thank you in advance for your input.
