The social media available for your personal life, can also be used to read, share, follow and post professional learnings and ideas. There are too many out there to list, but try searching the internet for anaesthesia (or other areas of interest) and a particular social media platform. There will be links to user accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Below are links to ANZCA related social media accounts, explore the connections and this can help get you started with the organisations and people you might like to follow in your own social media accounts. 


Podcasts are audio-only 'episodes', which you can subscribe to through many smart phone apps, or listen to them on your computer, even download them in an appropriate format to listen to in your car on your daily commute.

They are an easy way to stay informed in your area of interest while you are on the move, or simply doing other things.
