e-LPRAS and the Plastic Surgery Education Network

The BAPRAS Council has just agreed to fund the e-LPRAS project through to completion.

This will total around £1,000,000 over the duration of the project, which is due to be completed at the end of 2017. There is a move to speed this up so that it is completed by 2015. This will require more cash.

The sessions I have seen look good. One concern though is whether the topics will be regularly updated to take account of the most recent evidence.

In the US they are embracing online delivery of course material with the development of the Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN).

This project is a collaboration of the main American plastic surgery societies and provides resources both for trainees and life long learning/CME opportunities for fully qualified surgeons.

Should BAPRAS be considering the future CME requirements of consultant plastic surgeons as well?
