"Most Influential CEO of the Year 2018"

Sintetica CEO, Augusto Mitidieri , has been awarded the “Most Influential CEO of the Year 2018” by Corporate Vision magazine.
The award recognises the corporate strategy and operational elements that make up the 'human-centric philosophy which Augusto has put into the heart of the organisation. In an interview with the magazine said the company’s philosophy was based on responsibility and merit for the employee and not a hierarchical structure.
Managers took on more of a coaching role than one of command and control.
He said: “Total respect from inside the organisation, in terms of corporate and individual priorities is fundamental for managers to make clear what they expect from their employees, and to frequently align these behaviours to expectations, thanks to the continuous and constructive share of feedback. Not to judge their work but to address them towards a continuous improvement.”
The award from Corporate Vision magazine is one of a number of accolades received by Augusto and Sintetica SA in the past three years. Others include European CEO of the Year 2016 by CV Magazine, Best Pharmaceutical Company – Switzerland in the European Enterprise Awards and Award for Excellence in Anaesthetics and Analgesia – Switzerland Small Business Elite 2018 in the Worldwide Business Review.
Sintetica, set up in 1921, delivers injectable anaesthetics and analgesics to patients worldwide through innovative science and excellence in development, production and marketing.

Symposium - AAGBI WSM 2019

Patients must be the ones who decide on their anaesthetic technique

If you don’t let the patient decide on their anaesthetic when they could be awake or asleep, are you putting yourself and your reputation on the line?
The answer is yes.

Dr David Bogod
Consultant Anaesthetist

Symposium - AAGBI WSM 2019

Anaesthetists should not be defaulting to a GA technique

Many anaesthetists are hindered by their organisation’s capabilities, culture and even their own habits that stand in the way of offering patient choice.
However, anaesthetists should not be defaulting to a GA technique.

Dr Morné Wolmarans
Consultant Anaesthetist

Symposium - AAGBI WSM 2019

The choice of anaesthetic technique belongs to the patient

The problem comes in litigation when patients feel ignored, not listened to or that their right to a choice has been taken away from them.
The choice of anaesthetic technique belongs to the patient.

Symposium - AAGBI WSM 2019

Autonomy and patient choice must come first

Patient choice should be based upon the latest techniques and drugs, not an anaesthetist’s personal technique.
Autonomy and patient choice must come first.

Dr William Harrop-Griffiths
Consultant Anaesthetist

Symposium - AAGBI WSM 2019

Consent post-Montgomery is clear

WSM19 - Symposium

Choice, Consent and Anaesthetists:
Are you in breach of the law?

Wednesday 9th January
Room: St James, 4th Floor
QEII Centre Westminster, London

How would you feel if I took away your right to a choice in everyday life?
What would it feel like if you discovered there was an option available to you, but it hadn't been offered? Is it our duty, indeed legal obligation, to inform patients of all available therapeutic options, or are there circumstances when we can act in the best interest of the patient?

Sintetica Limited is hosting a unique "Question Time" panel discussion to debate these questions and others from the symposium audience regarding choice and consent. We know choice and consent are topical and we believe that more should be done to highlight the issues and ensure every patient gets offered a choice, especially with regards to regional anaesthesia and day surgery. An aspect of this debate is how the law views these issues and whether or not as a specialty we are in breach of the law?

The panel:
Chair: Dr Mike Nathanson (Immediate Past Honorary Secretary, Association of Anaesthetists)
Dr William Harrop-Griffiths (RCoA and ex-President of Association of Anaesthetists)
David Bogod (RCoA and ex-President of the OAA)
Simon Fletcher (Vice President RCoA)
Morne Wolmarans (ex-President RAUK)
Mary Stocker (ex-President BADS)
Representative of the GMC

This symposium is is free to attend. No booking is required. Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Lunch will be provided at the symposium.
