The ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting on Intensive Care, which incorporates the annual Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Conference, will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 9 - 11 October 2014. We have chosen the theme "Critical Care: The High Performance Team", as we believe that the best patient outcomes result from the combined efforts of a high performance team. All team members make vital contributions to achieving the unified goal of delivering the best possible healthcare tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. Australasian intensive care practice exemplifies this approach and recognises the vital role of engaged industry partners as team players. As always, the scientific program will showcase the best current critical care research and practice, however we have broadened the scope to better include other team members such as emergency clinicians, anaesthetists and allied health practitioners. In addition, we have added some new presentation formats to ensure The ASM remains vibrant and contemporary, and also provide various new opportunities for industry partners. Of course the social program will continue the tradition of ASM hospitality. As conference hosts for the ASM in 2014, we invite sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to magnificent Melbourne for a cutting edge meeting which explores, inspires and challenges our concepts of critical care high performance teams.

Jack is the highly respected Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care at the University of Michigan. He is currently on sabbatical in Melbourne at Monash Uni with ANZICS-RC. His research areas seek to understand the context of critical illness, both how this influences the individual’s life journey and how the organisational environment influences the effectiveness of the care that a patient receives. Jack is also researching long-term functional and cognitive outcomes after severe sepsis. Vince McCri is the Clinical Nurse Educator at Launceston General Hospital and will be sharing how the unit there has implemented education and training on ECMO for critical care nurses.

The primary exam for CICM is a relatively new exam and will be an increasingly common pathway into ICU training. There is currently limited exam preparation support for candidates and many trainees I have interacted with are keen for the introduction of an exam course. We plan to run a single day course with a strong practical focus at ANZICS House, Carlton. Please see our flyer and provisional program attached. There will be two streams; a candidate stream for those preparing to sit the exam, and a faculty stream for Intensivists involved in supervising candidates preparing for this exam. Teaching faculty includes CICM first part examiners, recent successful candidates, Intensivists and anaesthetists. The day will focus on exam technique, study preparedness and topics of difficulty. The morning comprises adult learning based talks, followed by small group workshops on written exam and viva skills. The afternoon will incorporate exam-simulated viva stations and a written exam paper with targeted feedback to follow. Registrations are now open and can be found on our website here http://vpecc.weebly.com/

Expressions of interest are now open for regional representatives on the Women in Intensive Care Medicine Network ANZICS Committee (WIN-ANZICS). 
WIN-ANZICS aims to promote the participation of women in all aspects of Australasian intensive care medicine including clinical, academic and leadership roles. The Women in Intensive Care Medicine Network focuses on challenges to gender equity in the intensive care medical workforce. However, we hope to work with equivalent networks developed by critical care nurses and allied health professionals in the future. 
We are seeking representatives from each state and territory of Australia and from New Zealand. 
Eligibility requirements: 

  • Applicants must be financial members of ANZICS
  • Applicants may be Fellows or Trainees in intensive care medicine
  • Applications from both women and men are welcome

Expressions of interest should include the applicant's CV and background on their interest in gender equity in intensive care medicine. Please find attached the terms of reference for the WIN-ANZICS committee. 
If there is more than one applicant from a single region, an election will be held. 
Expressions of interest should be sent to the anzics@anzics.com.au, prior Wednesday 28th March 2018. 
As this EOI is open to both trainees and fellows, consider encouraging trainees in your unit to join ANZICS and apply. 
Kind regards,
Dr Lucy Modra and Dr Sarah Yong
Convenors, Women in Intensive Care Medicine Network

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) recently released the Joint Statement on Neuraxial Connectors and ISO 80369-6:2016 Small bore connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications – Part 6: Connectors for neuraxial applications for use in Australia and makes eight recommendations to promote safe implementation of ISO 80369-6:2016 in Australian hospitals.

The International Organisation for Standardisation published ISO 80369-6:2016 in March 2016 to reduce the injection of erroneous substances via intrathecal, epidural and other neural routes. ISO 80369-6:2016 specifies the design and dimensions of small-bore connectors intended for all neural applications, including neuraxial, peripheral and regional applications.

The joint statement by the Commission and ANZCA recommends that ISO 803-6 be adopted in Australia to improve patient safety. It is endorsed by the clinical colleges and societies whose members most frequently use this class of connectors and contains guidance for health services planning for and implementing these devices.

The joint statement by the Commission and ANZCA and the international standard ISO 80369-6:2016 are available on the Commission's website at:

The growing number of medical schools in the Pacific Islands, along with a large cohort of students studying abroad, currently lack a peak representative body. 

To fill this void and connect, empower and represent Pacific Island medical students, PMSA was founded in 2016. PMSA will incorporate 27 universities from 14 countries, with our Core Member medical schools (Pacific Islands) and Associate schools (wider Oceania) facilitating global partnerships between future doctors from throughout the region.

A core objective of PMSA is to host an annual Southern Hemisphere Medical Camp, with the inaugural camp scheduled to be held in Fiji from the 15th till 22nd of December 2017. This camp is designed to improve access to healthcare in the Pacific Islands in emergency situations by educating health providers in areas that are essential to the future of Pacific Health.

​The World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine (WFSICCM) is launching an initiative to solicit exemplars from national scientific societies on the types of patient and family centered care/engagement practices being implemented worldwide.  A growing number of studies are addressing patient centered care and strategies to engage family members to promote best outcomes for critically ill patients.  However, the degree to which specific types of patient and family centered care practices are being implemented worldwide is not known.

The survey "Patient and Family Centered Care in the ICU: Worldwide Exemplars" is being launched to obtain information on a global scale. The project is using a survey methodology with use of Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap™), a secure, web-based application, to collection information from WFSICCM country members.  The information provided will be useful to inform the global critical care community of current initiatives and strategies, and potential barriers to implementing patient centered outcomes research and family centered care/engagement to enhance ICU care delivery.

You're told you should be lucky to be alive, yet you struggle with daily tasks and can't go back to work.

This what life is like for people with Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS), a constellation of physical, mental and cognitive problems that can occur after spending time in the intensive care unit.

So, what can be done to help?
