What is the ED/FACEM/GP Critical Procedures Course?
Many FACEMs report de-skilling in critical procedures due to ED workload demands, prioritisation of “traffic/flow management”, supervision/teaching responsibilities and WBA/DOPS requirements of trainees. The FACEM Critical Procedures Course has been designed to provide FACEMs with an opportunity to refresh and update their procedural skills in a fun and relaxed environment on a single day course.
This is a 1-day course for:
- Consultant Emergency Physicians (FACEMs)
- Senior ED Registrars/Advanced Emergency Medicine Trainees
- NB: Rural Generalist GP’s and Advanced ACRRM and RACGP Trainees may also find the course valuable
FACEMs: complete your triennial procedural CPD requirements in one day, whilst updating your procedural knowledge and skills. Accredited for 7 hours of ACEM CPD (Category: Group Learning, Activity Type: Workshops and Training – Procedural skills based)
NB: This course is not suitable for Interns, or Resident Medical Officers.
The course is limited to a maximum of 12 participants only. This ensures you receive individualised, focused teaching of important procedural skills. The course uses a combination of short interactive lectures/discussions and hands-on procedure training.
