BJA Education

Each issue of BJA Education includes tests designated for potential CPD (the term CME may be interchangeably used) recognition. Each test is based on an article published in BJA Education and consists of a series of multiple-choice questions followed by a brief optional post-test evaluation on how the knowledge gained can be used. Recognition for each test may be earned for up to five years after publication after which time the tests will expire on this site.
