Fatigue and nighttime work are issues of great relevance for our profession as they affect both anesthesiologist wellbeing and patient safety. ESAIC and EBA have decided to join forces in conducting a project on these topics with the strong support and collaboration of the NASC Committee.
The project involves data collection through surveys and is ultimately intended to develop recommendations. To this end, the ESAIC group developed one survey on the impact of nightshift on patient safety and the EBA group 2 surveys on the impact of fatigue (one for consultants, one for trainees), that explore these issues from different perspectives.
All these surveys are important for the shared project as they collect different information.
With shared forces, the two Societies will be able to formulate recommendations for management and regulation, thereby improving the well-being of both our professional community and our patients.
Below please find the link to the 3 surveys.
