The COSBART philosophy

COSBART was developed at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust by members of the anaesthetic department in response to the need for a low-cost form of life support training relevant to anaesthesia, rather than general medicine. The hope is that the regular and frequent practice of scenarios specifically drawn from anaesthesia with one's colleagues is more useful than a triennial three-day course aimed at crises likely to occur on a medical ward.

Course Directors: Dr Ben Maddison and Dr Chris Wright, Consultant Anaesthetists, Mid Essex Hospital Services, NHS Trust.
