ESAIC Academy

The ESAIC Academy is specifically designed to
  • Promote patient safety and quality of care
  • Implement continuity of care to improve patient outcome
  • Strengthen, harmonise and integrate education into clinical practice
  • Stimulate & facilitate research and foster innovation
  • Develop and promote the professional role of anaesthesiologists and intensivists

The ESAIC Academy is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide CME activity for medical specialists.

The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.

The credits for the users of the modules available in the ESAIC Academy will be 1 European CME credit (ECMEC®) for every hour (60 minutes of actual e-learning) of use, provided that the users have completed a module and have passed the relevant assessment.

The ESAIC Webinars are specifically designed to
  • Touch hot topics including existing/near-future Guidelines
  • Provide cutting-edge transdisciplinary scientific content
  • Cover subjects that are of concern in routine clinical practice, are based on solid evidence and could benefit a large number of patients (e.g. protective ventilation, management of failed regional anaesthesia, management of hypnotic-opioids interactions, etc.)

All ESAIC Webinars have a duration of 60 minutes and include scientific contributions from 2 to 3 speakers chaired by a Host. Webinars also boast Polls, to increase interactivity and engagement, and Q&A sessions to answer questions submitted by the audience (in real time).

Both Webinars and Webinar replays enable learners to earn European CME Credits (ECMEC®s).

The UEMS/EACCME diploma can be downloaded only if learners spent the required minimum time on the LIVE event/module (1 hr for 1 ECMEC® credit) and reached the related pass rate (applicable to Webinar replays only).

LIVE Webinars are accessible free of charge to all myESAIC account holders.

The ESAIC eLearning modules are designed to deliver knowledge, skills and awareness by means of
  • Questions and quizzes to stimulate reflective learning
  • Assessments to test learning and to provide a motivation to retain the information that is given
  • Case-based learning to illustrate what is being taught
  • Problem-solving clinical settings
  • Videos and infographics

Being aware of the cognitive overload in eLearning, the ESAIC eLearning modules are divided into small and concise sections so that the motivation for learners to progress through a module is improved.
A broader range of media have been integrated to make the modules even more interesting and varied.

The knowledge of learners can be tested at the end of the module.
The UEMS/EACCME diploma can be downloaded only if learners have spent the required minimum time on the module (1 hr for 1 ECMEC® credit) and reached the related pass rate.

The ESAIC aims for the highest standards of practice and safety in
  • Anaesthesia
  • Perioperative medicine
  • Intensive care
  • Critical emergency medicine and pain treatment through education
  • Research and professional development throughout Europe

The ESAIC provides high-quality training and education, endorsed by a robust and uniform system of examination and certification. Our wide array of instructional and educational opportunities prepare the anaesthesiologist and intensivist to face the challanges of their clinical daily practice.

This section is exclusively accessible to invited Speakers and Hosts involved in the eLearning activities organised by the European Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (ESAIC).

Information is given on the Webinar structure, formats, techniques and tips but also on responsibilities, terms and conditions related to the Speakers/Hosts in ESAIC eLearning events.


If you are a Speaker or Host of one of the ESAIC Webinars but you cannot access this area, drop us a line at

  • To understand the rationale and scientific theory and the current knowledge on the topic
  • How to apply the principals and techniques for the different surgical indications and types of cancer
  • To determine the benefits of regional anaesthesia for this type of pathology and that it may affect the risk of recurrence

This educational activity is aimed at clarifying whether regional anesthesia may help to prevent and/or reduce the risk of cancer recurrence by reducing the need for opioids or volatile anesthetics, or reducing the stress response to surgery and giving an update on recent literature.

This Webinar has been granted 1 European CME credit (ECMEC®) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).

  • Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) solutions for infusion belong to the class of artificial colloids.
  • In the European Union (EU) / European Economic Area (EEA), HES solutions are indicated for the treatment of hypovolaemia due to acute blood loss when crystalloids alone are not considered sufficient.
  • The use of HES solutions outside the marketing authorization (MA) has been monitored in two independent drug utilization studies (DUSs) from two Marketing Authorisation Holders (MAHs) in EU countries.
  • To prevent any use of HES solutions outside the terms of the marketing authorisation (MA) in the European Union (EU) / European Economic Area (EEA), this training has been implemented by the MAHs.

This online-training applies for Healthcare Professionals in the EU/EEA only. The e-learning focuses on the usage of HES products according to the European product information and can therefore only be accessed by HCPs from EU/EEA.

Relevant healthcare professionals (HCPs) are required to complete this training prior to the use of HES solutions at their institution.
