South West Anaesthesia Research Matrix

  SWARM

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR RTS 2022. SEE RTS FOR MORE INFORMATION!

Established in February 2012, SWARM is an anaesthetic trainee-led audit and research collaborative based in Peninsula Deanery in the South West of England.


It aims are:

1. To establish a regional network of anaesthetic trainees who conduct multi-centre research and audit with a high potential for making an impact.
2. To allow trainees to continue their involvement in research and audit projects as they migrate around the deanery.
3. To provide training in research for the educational benefit of SWARM members.
4. To attract national funding for research and audit work.
We would love to involve as many South West anaesthetic trainees in research as possible and whether you are a bona fide research guru or getting involved in research for the first time SWARM is here to help. If you are interested in getting involved please do contact your hospital's trainee local lead or the committee directly on SWARM.trn@nhs.net

Interested parties are encouraged to read the SWARM constitution, since participation in SWARM projects assumes an agreement to abide by the terms that are detailed within it. 
 
 

To date SWARM have recruited over 2000 patients to NIHR Portfolio Studies

WINNER of the Trainee Network category of The RCoA/NIHR Clinical Research Network Awards 2017!
