UK: eligible for level 1 RCoA CPD points (max 10 / year)
Aus + NZ: eligible for category two, level one ANZCA CPD points (max 10 / year)
CPD for anaesthetists on your iPhone! No internet connection required, do it in theatre, on the bus home, even in a plane! There are 12 CPD points available in this app.
The app contains eleven categories with 1 CPD point available in each. These include
1 - physiology
2 - pharmacology
3 - physics
4 - airway assessment
5 - anaphylaxis
6 - advanced life support (Adult)
7 - thromboprophylaxis
8 - basic life support (Adult)
9 - data protection (UK centric)
10 - cardiovascular physiology
11 - obstetric physiology
12 - protecting vulnerable adults (UK centric)
13 - vote for the next module via twitter @conquestfrca. Work has begun on protecting vulnerable adults. I am looking for contributors to next new modules, ethics, teaching and inotropes.
In each of these categories there a 25 five stem MCQs . If you score above 80% will be able to produce a certificate issuing 1 CPD point in that category. You can email this certificate to yourself or take a screen grab (if you give the app access, which it will ask for, the app will automatically take a picture of the certificate). If you get score under 80% you will be able to review the questions and their explanations. After this you can resit the questions and hopefully achieve 80% or more.
An internet connection is required to download the questions but after that no internet connection is required for the app to work.
Currently we only feature RCoA points but hope that our American, Canadian and South African. Our Australian and New Zealand colleagues are ok to use this app, I just need to update the certificate production (will wait for other colleges to clarify their standpoint before updating).
In time we hope to add more categories in line with the RCoA and international anaesthesia colleges guidance. Features of the app include
1, Colour coding to help identify correct answers
2, Cumulative scoring
3, Problem reporting incase there are any errors
4, Review of your answers with highlighting of poorly answered questions
5, Certificate production
6, Every question has it's rationale (in many of these there are hyperlinks to useful web resources)
From the makers of Conquest FRCA anaesthesia exam revision iOS app. The two apps share a database, so if you contribute to one, you will be contributing to the other. Trainees helping seniors, seniors helping trainees. Beautiful!
