 New for 2017 - Barema and AAGBI environmental poster prize

The AAGBI recognises that our actions have an impact on the environment and regards global warming and climate change as pressing issues. In 2013 the Environmental Task Group of the AAGBI was formed to develop the idea of sustainable practice and to promote greener anaesthesia. In 2014, we linked with Barema, the Association for Anaesthetic and Respiratory Device Suppliers, representing companies that manufacture or supply anaesthetic and respiratory equipment in the UK to establish the Barema & AAGBI Environment award. This recognises excellence in sustainability within the speciality to further develop a greener anaesthesia agenda.

Trainee anaesthetists are invited to submit an abstract demonstrating how their activity, project, campaign or other work (including original research) related to anaesthesia, intensive care or pain management, has had (and will continue to have) a measurable beneficial effect on the environment, including the outcome and how it is/was measured. This should include an explanation of how the idea can have wider applicability e.g. to other departments, units, Trusts etc. The abstract should describe plans for continuity of this project/activity/campaign/other work and how it will be sustained over time. Any role for industry in supporting and extending the benefits of the initiative should be included.

Abstracts should be submitted with the following sections: Untitled introductory paragraph / Methods / Results / Discussion / Acknowledgements / References

A cash prize will be awarded to the winner, along with a grant of £700 for further development of their initiative. Deadline 20 February 2017.

All accepted abstracts will be published in Anaesthesia in the form of a fully referenceable online supplement (N.B. Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse publication e.g. where there are major concerns over ethics and/or content).
