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.
