SNACC Communications Committee Update

Chair, Communications Committee

A short update from the SNACC Communications Committee prior to the summer, with more to follow later in the year! 

Firstly, we would like to welcome Ms. Melody Foote, IMIAE Communications Associate, to the SNACC Communications Team. Her input and support are invaluable in all aspects of the committee’s work. The SNACC Social Media Sub-Committee continues to be chaired by Dr. Kate Rosenblatt MD, the Website by Dr. Reza Gorji MD, and Newsletter by Dr. Girija Rath MD. 

The first few months of 2022 have been taken up with successfully transitioning the SNACC communication pathways and processes to IMIAE, ensuring that the SNACC membership globally is kept connected and regularly updated with the society, its developments, and news and are able to join the conversations. The weekly SNACC eBlast continues to undergo regular review to contain news items that are relevant and useful to the SNACC community; we continue to collaborate with both the Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology (JNA) Editorial Team and the ICPNT Executive Committee. The latest JNA issue is now highlighted in the weekly eBlast, along with the most recent educational resources and news from ICPNT.  

Later in the year, in collaboration with the Trainee Engagement Committee, we will be launching the SNACC website discussion forum. The online forum will provide the SNACC community with a platform through which to share and discuss ideas or experiences, ask questions, and, importantly, learn from each other. These are key to innovation and improvement in healthcare and for us in perioperative neuroscience. We look forward to sharing this resource with you. 

Thank you to all committee members for their work over the last few months. We always welcome new members and would like to encourage Trainees to join our team. If you are interested in joining, please contact me directly or any committee member.
