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.

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/

Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme

Application Form


Application Form Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme 2016.doc​ 

The Intensive Care Global Rising Star Programme aims to identify promising and innovative young clinician/scientists. The recipients will have the opportunity to present an overview of their past and on-going research activities during a dedicated symposium at the 41st ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting held in Perth, Western Australia, 20-22 October 2016.  During the symposium each recipient will present a lecture (25 minute lecture + 5 minute discussion).

Travel expenses (to the value of $AU3, 000), accommodation and registration costs for the recipients will be covered.

The objective of the programme is to encourage innovative and productive early to mid-career clinician/scientists disseminate their findings to an international audience. One fellowship will be awarded to a clinician/scientist from each of the following regions: America (Canada, USA and South America), Europe (including United Kingdom and Ireland) and Asia.

Applicants should hold a medical degree and have completed, or be in-training, for a fellowship in intensive care medicine. Applicants must be aged 42 years or younger on 20 October 2016. Preference will be given to clinician/scientists who have pursued a well-defined and innovative research path, leading to several publications in high-impact peer-reviewed journals. Preference will also be given to those applicants who have publications in which they are listed as first or last author. While applicants may include work with Australian and New Zealand collaborators, preference will be given to work completed in the region of each applicant.

Applications will be assessed by a panel of clinician/scientists that includes members from ANZICS as well as leader from each of the regions. Applicants will be notified via email by 8 August 2016.

The applicant must present their lecture in English. It is also anticipated that recipients will contribute to the academic and social programme of the ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting.

Airdate: Tuesday, November 10, 2015​

Featuring Prof. Ken Hillman and Dr. Charlie Corke.

CPR can be a brutal process - in hospital, the survival rate is around 15 per cent.

Complicating matters - in many cases, doctors don’t know how the patient feels about resuscitation. If they have formal documentation, it often can’t be accessed in time, meaning they may be brought back to life against their wishes.

Do the benefits outweigh the risks and can you decide your own fate? This week on Insight, we look at how people can re-claim this power, when it’s wise to use CPR and when you’re better off without it.​

Intensive Care Emergencies Course 2015

 - An evolution of the ANZICS Melbourne ICM course.

 - Designed for doctors who want to boost their practical skills in ICU – for registrars or consultants alike, training in ICU, anaesthetics, ED, or physicians – everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

 - Across two days, centred around multiple simulation scenarios with intermissions of group discussion. Led by highly experienced simulation instructors. Small groups so the practical experience is heightened for all.

 - Each session focuses on a specific area in ICU or the acute deteriorating patient on the ward e.g. difficult to ventilate patient in ICU, the difficult tracheostomy patient, what to do when your haemodynamically poor patient isn't responding...

 - Overall underlying themes of team leadership and crisis resource management.

 - November timeslot with the aim of boosting your skills before starting a new ICU term the following year (and missing the Christmas holidays!).

- Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are all provided by our favourite local café.

 

 Venue: Easternhealth (Box Hill), Melbourne.

 Date: November 24th-25th.

 Course Fee: $500.00

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/
