Dr Philip Tucker to address the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland

Dr Tucker's presentation is entitled, 'The Tiring Anaesthetist' and will examine the factors that influence fatigue among doctors.

The presentation, to be delivered at the Annual Congress of the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland in September 2014, will outline implications for the management of patient care and doctors' own wellbeing. The presentation will be based on a recent editorial published in the Anaesthetist (Tucker & Byrne, 2014. doi:10.1111/anae.12447).
