Accidental Awareness in General Anaesthesia 

Jackie Andrade, lead supervisor on project 13: Creative technologies for behaviour change  has been on the steering panel for the National Audit Project on Accidental Awareness in General Anaesthesia (AAGA) since it began in 2011. The project collected patient reports of accidental awareness during AAGA from every hospital in the UK and Ireland, the largest study of its kind and reported on its findings this month, creating considerable media interest.
