The Effective Management of Anaesthetic Crisis (EMAC) course is an Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) accredited course and is recognised as an alternative to EMST for vocational trainees.
The course focuses on how a crisis is recognised and subsequently managed. Recent literature reviews recognise that it is the human factors or behavioural aspects of team leadership and team interaction within healthcare where the errors are made. EMAC focuses on the role of the anaesthetist as the leader of this team during an anaesthetic crisis and the interaction with the staff around the anaesthetist to use their skills and resources effectively.
Anaesthetists (specialist, GP and non-specialist); and anaesthetic registrars
The course is presented as five modules over two and a half days:
