SWIFT Survey

The PATRN Swift Survey was conceived for the 2017 APA ASM to conduct a simple, topical survey amongst ASM delegates during the conference. It is a stand-alone project that completes within 48 hours and can survey over 400 anaesthetic opinions. PATRN representatives should design the survey and run it with PATRN committee assistance.

We hope to make the SWIFT survey an annual part of the APAGBI ASM and encourage trainees to submit ideas. We will call for ideas annually in the spring. To make sure you receive such information, please sign up as a rep or follow our twitter feed (link to PATRN Home page)


Swift Survey 2021

This year's survey will examine the impact of COVID-19 on training in paediatric anaesthesia. As it has been an extraordinary year and everyone will have unique experiences of the pandemic we felt it was only appropriate to let trainees have their say on how Covid-19 has affected their paediatric anaesthesia training.
