Each trainee will have an educational supervisor with whom they should agree a learning contract. Those on an ICM block will be expected to complete Workplace Based Assessments appropriate for ICM training. Information can be found on the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine Website. Dr Ben Greatorex is FICM Faculty Tutor at Raigmore. Ensure that you are aware of the training records that require completion during your block. These include RCOA e-portfolio Annex F and ideally the FICM stage 2 training record.
There will also be ample opportunity to discuss appropriate topics during the consultant ward round. Trainees should identify areas needing covered.
Each month there is a CME/audit afternoon where topics pertaining to anaesthesia and ICM are presented and discussed. On Wednesday lunchtimes are 1pm there will be a clinical meeting held on MS teams in which we discuss the patients in the ICU, and those who have been in ICU during the previous week. This acts as a ‘multidisciplinary round’ as well as an educational opportunity.
Raigmore ICU Clinical Guidelines are available on the ICU PC desktop and the Anaesthesia shared drive and hard copy within a bright pink folder in the ICU. The Scottish Intensive Care Society have some useful modules for learning. The e-ICM modules accessed via the FICM website are also a good source of learning. A good basic starter book is the ABC of Intensive Care with the next step perhaps the Oxford Desk Reference: Critical Care. A tailor made logbook for ICM is available to download from this site http://www.iccueducation.org.uk
