About the journal

BJA Education, formerly Continuing Education in Anaesthesia, Critical Care & Pain, is a joint venture of the British Journal of Anaesthesia and The Royal College of Anaesthetists in the UK. It is also the official journal of The Faculty of Pain MedicineThe College of Anaesthetists of Ireland, The Hong Kong College of Anaesthesiologists and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine.

With the change in name from Continuing Education in Anaesthesia, Critical Care & Pain (CEACCP) to BJA Education, and the move to monthly publishing in 2016, we further strengthen the educational platform provided by the BJA as a whole. The overall aim is to provide a greater linkage between BJA reviews and the well-established educational material provided by BJA Education (formerly known as CEACCP). 

This will enhance the already broad international appeal of BJA Education. The journal has a monthly print circulation of over 16,000 and online users from 181 countries. The BJA Education editorial team will be aiming to commission articles from an increasing number of international experts and the journal has also recently added international editors to the Editorial Board. This coupled with the ongoing program provided by the MCQs associated with every article make BJA Education a really useful resource for continuing professional development (CPD).

Please note: All articles for this journal are commissioned. Unsolicited articles are not accepted.

BJA Education is included in the annual membership fee for members of The Royal College of Anaesthetists, the College Anaesthetists of Ireland and of the Hong Kong College of Anaesthesiologists, but is also available on subscription.
