This course is mandatory for all ‘Novices’ to Anaesthesia; including ACCS and ICM Trainees who are training in our departments. As an ACCS trainee, if you have already attended the course then please ignore the email – we a list from HEE so have included you all in this email.
The programme covers the Initial Assessment of Competencies (IAC) taken from the RCoA CCT in Anaesthetics curriculum - Basic Level Training (Annex B), with a few additional sessions deemed relevant to this early stage of training. These competencies are also required to be signed off by ACCS and ICM trainees and are included in the relevant specialty training curriculum documents.
The course is designed to get everyone to an equivalent baseline to feel more prepared clinically. There will be some topics which we do not cover, but by teaching you the basics you will have something to build upon during your theatre sessions.
There will be 4 face to face days (August) and 1 simulation day (October or November). Sessions will be led by either Consultants or Senior Registrars and are designed to be interactive!
