New sessions added to eIntegrity's Intensive Care Medicine e-learning programme

Published: Wednesday, 13 January 2021

Six new e-learning sessions have been added to the Intensive Care Medicine (e-ICM) e-Learning Programme.

The e-Learning for Intensive Care Medicine (e-ICM) Programme provides nine modules of resources (e-learning sessions, links to open access review articles, guidelines and multiple-choice questions) covering the syllabus for training in intensive care medicine. It has been developed by the UK Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

The new sessions take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete and comprise the following topics:

  • Care of the Collapsed Pregnant Patient
  • General Aspects of Obstetric Critical Care
  • Decision-making Surrounding Escalation of Treatment
  • Introduction to Intensive Care Medicine
  • Long-term Outcomes of Critical Illness.

There is also a specific COVID-19 session on decision-making surrounding escalation of critical care which is available in the Coronavirus e-learning programme.

While the resources will be particularly useful for trainees undertaking training in intensive care medicine, they will also be of interest to anyone caring for critically ill patients.
