SSAI Free Open Access Meducation


FOAM resources from SSAI

SSAI wants to contribute as much as possible to the FOAM concept and provide according to the FOAM ethos: “Free Open Access Med[ical ed]ucation – Medical education for anyone, anywhere, anytime.”

If you are not familiar with this concept, you find a good explanation here.

SSAI will concentrate on educational content related to our specialty (i.e. anaesthesiology, intensive care, emergency medicine, and pain medicine).

Post congress material from SSAI congresses

SSAI has recently started to make talks held on the bi-annual congress available. SSAI has asked the speakers for permission to post their talks as #FOAMed and most have generously agreed to do that. SSAI has partnered with and the Swedish Society for Anaesthesia and Intensive care, SFAI. The team of has worked many hours in order to bring you these talks and they are posted on Press the button, enjoy and learn.
