This workshop is not aimed at new Trainees or Peri-Fellowship Registrars, as a level of experience in critical care areas is required.
ACEM Late Phase AdvancedTrainees and Peri-Fellowship Registrars are encouraged to register interest in CTEC's new 2024 Emergency Trainee Procedures Workshop.
Selection for the 2024 workshops will be based on occupational suitability and priority will be given to practitioners in peripheral and regional hospitals and those engaged in training and education. Successful applicants will be determined by the Course Convenors and notified by email.
CTEC's Critical Care Procedures workshop aims to increase the knowledge and confidence of participants to perform procedures which are not routinely performed, but may be required in a life-saving emergency by critical care practitioners. Participants will benefit from senior faculty from Emergency Medicine and Surgery disciplines, providing the opportunity to operate on a cadaver closely simulating actual patients.
The workshop covers a number of procedures for which there is an expectation a practitioner will be able to manage as a life-saving measure, particularly in peripheral, regional or austere environments. It is specifically designed for doctors working in emergency settings. This workshop is not aimed at new Trainees, as a level of experience in critical care areas is required.
There will be two participants per cadaveric work station, with assistance from one senior Emergency nurse.
