Dear Volunteer,

We are glad to announce that the next On-Line Assessment (OLA) will take place on Friday 7 April 2017 from 14:00 to 17:00 (Central European Summer Time).


As a reminder, the OLA is an on-line test designed to help anaesthetists identify areas where their knowledge needs improving and up-dating. Directors of Training, consultants and trainees at different stages of training may use the OLA for various purposes: examination preparation, regular self-assessment, formal examination and in the future perhaps increasingly as help for revalidation of skills.

The On-Line Assessment (OLA) is very similar to the In-Training Assessment (ITA) and the EDAIC Part I Examination. It uses the same marking system, and has the same structure: 2 sets of 60 Multiple-Choice Questions, with 5 true/false answers to give for each question. It is therefore a perfect training tool for all candidates wanting to take the EDAIC Part I in autumn.


Hospitals able to host the assessment in good conditions can apply as OLA centres any given year, without applying for accreditation. Details concerning centre requirements and host duties are listed in the updated “OLA Host Guidelines” and “OLA Regulations for Candidates” attached. Volunteers interested in organising the OLA in their own department in April 2017, need to carefully refer to these documents before applying.

If you are confident that the OLA can be run (again) in your department, please follow this link : in order to fill in the “OLA Centre Application Form 2017” and submit it before 18 November 2016. Please note that OLA Hosts who organised the assessment in the past also need to send us the latest version of the Centre Application Form in order to host the 2017 session of the assessment. Thank you very much.


OLA centres normally open both to local residents through group registration and external candidates through individual on-line registration. There is no minimum number of candidates required to open an OLA centre.

Group registrations take place before individual registrations in order to give priority to local residents. During group registrations, Hosts can register their residents/candidates for the OLA using the attached “Group Registration Form 2017”. Only remaining examination stations will be made available to external candidates through the individual on-line registration system. If a Host registers residents through group registration, he or she will receive an invoice for the group as well as a group report with the results of the non-specialist candidates he or she registered. The residents will also receive individual performance reports with their results. If you wish to register residents/candidates, please fill in the attached “Group Registration Form 2017” and send it back to before 18 November 2016.

Hosts who do not wish to register candidates and prefer to make all the places in their centre available during individual on-line registrations can do so, but will receive no invoice or group results. During individual registration, each candidate pays directly online.

IMPORTANT: Candidates who were registered during group registrations by their Host Centre should not register again individually via the ESA’s on-line system. 

Individual registrations are scheduled to open on 05 December 2016 and close on 06 February 2017. The 2017 Registration Fee is €50 per candidate regardless of the registration type.  Candidates can take the test in the following European languages: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish, Chinese

Further information is available on the ESA website including an article related to the 2016 session of the On-Line Assessment.
As always, we thank you very much in advance for your kind help

With kind regards,

ESA Examinations Department

Evidence- and Consensus-based Guideline on Postoperative Delirium

Dear All,

ESA Active Members are invited to comment on the final draft of the ESA guideline entitled “Evidence- and Consensus-based Guideline on Postoperative Delirium”. The guideline has been produced by an expert ESA Task Force on Reduction of Postoperative Delirium chaired by Prof. Claudia Spies.

Please consult the draft on the ESA website and comment using the dedicated form.

1. Go to
2. Login to access members’ only area (top of page)
3. Click on tab Delirium Guideline
We would be especially pleased to receive comments on the following points:

Practicality – How well does the guideline address everyday situations and problems in this area?

Readability – Is the guideline easy to read? Does it make sense?

Presentation – Is the layout clear?

Acceptability and generalisability – Does it fit into practice in your own country? Would the guideline as written now cause problems, or antagonise anyone?

All comments received from the ESA members will be reviewed by the ESA Task Force on Reduction of Postoperative Delirium.

This draft guideline will be available for comments until 7 November 2015.

Many thanks for your help.

Edoardo De Robertis
Chair, ESA Guidelines Committee
