The first Sprint National Anaesthesia Project (SNAP-1) took place on Tuesday 13 May and Wednesday 14 May 2014.

The SNAP-1 results were published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia in December 2016.

SNAP-1 was a research project which involved a 2-day evaluation of patient reported outcomes after anaesthesia: specifically, patient satisfaction after anaesthesia and patient-reported awareness.

SNAPs are intended to provide a 'snapshot' evaluation of clinical activity and patient centred outcomes that are important and relevant to both patients and anaesthetists.

SNAP-1 was the first in what we hope will be an exciting new initiative of projects involving anaesthetists and hospitals throughout the UK.

Further information about SNAP-1 can be found on this website but if you would like to know more please contact us.
