NTAM depends on your expertise for many of the presentations, but every year we invite a speaker who is prominent in their field to deliver a series of plenary talks. Please take a look at previous years' programmes for an idea of the format of the week.
The North Thames Anaesthetic meeting is an update meeting for Anaesthetists of all levels.NTAM was founded in 1999 by anaesthetists within the North Thames area of London but over the years has expanded to become a truly international meeting, routinely welcoming delegates and speakers from across the UK as well as from Europe, Australasia and North America.
NTAM prides itself on providing a highly educational and broad focus of discussion, focusing on the latest research and updates but also reviewing subjects that may be useful to the typical anaesthetist in day to day practice. The meeting maintains a very high satisfaction rating for its programme and accommodation. The meeting is typically accredited for 15 CPD credits from the Royal College of Anaesthetists, UK. All sessions are mapped to the Royal College of Anaesthetists' CPD Matrix. Take a look at what other delegates have said about us.Commendations
NTAM hosts approximately 70 delegates, many of whom stay in the conference hotel. We have always felt that the small size is a positive and encourages interaction between delegates. The atmosphere is friendly, meaning that attendees are all able to learn from each other, through formal presentations and from informal discussions over dinner.
View our previous programmes. In recent years our plenary speakers have included Ramani Moonesinghe (Director, UCL Surgical Outcomes Research Centre [SOuRCe]), Dan Martin (Director of the UCL Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme Environment Medicine), Mike Grocott (Caudwell Xtreme Everest), Judith Hulf (Past-President of RCoA) and Kevin Fong (Co-Director of CASE).
Our programme aims to cover all general aspects of the Royal College of Anaesthetists' matrix. We typically have a variety of talks on topics such as Perioperative Medicine, Orthopaedic Anaesthesia, Obstetrics, Intensive Care Medicine, Pain, and Paediatrics for the DGH Anaesthetist.
The Hotel Village Montana provides a comfortable backdrop to the meeting. Breakfast and Evening Meals are included in the meeting costs. Costs vary according to the number of delegates in a room and whether they are a trainee or consultant. Standard accommodation is provided for 7 nights, Saturday to Saturday.
As the summer comes to a close, we on the NTAM committee are looking ahead to the January 2020 Tignes meeting, with hopes that it will at least equal our very successful 2019 meeting making it the best NTAM yet. We are busy compiling the educational programme for the January meeting and look forward to welcoming Professor Hugh Montgomery (UCL Professor of Intensive Care Medicine, Head of UCL Centre for Human Health and Performance, Director of Research for Institute for Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH), Consultant Intensivist at Whittington Hospital) as our plenary speaker.
