About the course:

The 2018 programme builds on the success of Resuscitation Symposium 2017 and the feedback and suggestions from delegates.
The programme has been expanded to cover additional topics, whilst retaining the discussion panels and dedicated clinical scenarios sessions that have proved so popular. The contribution made to the new programme by a number of Consultant Emergency Physicians and Intensivists under the direction of Prof Tim Harris, is acknowledged.

The sessions address topics highly relevant to the front-line clinician, with a clear focus on the evidence base and the practical implications for day-to-day clinical practice – simple facts to make big changes.

By the end of the course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of recent advances in resuscitation medicine and be up to date with new/recent research evidence (and the implications for practice); the course will certainly give you greater confidence in your practice in relation to resuscitation and will help you identify areas of practice that need to be changed or reviewed.

Target audience and Audience:

The course is designed for Emergency Physicians, Acute Physicians, Anaesthetists and Intensivists.

It is pitched at a level suitable for Consultants and senior trainees in all areas of acute care.

As you may already know, RCEM will no longer be awarding CPD points or credits to external CPD events, a practice that has already been adopted by several other Medical Royal Colleges. Nevertheless, for courses suitable for Consultants in Emergency Medicine, Infomed will continue to issue Certificates of Attendance indicating CPD credits, as a reference, based on the number of learning hours attended, but recognising that “the amount of educational activity obtained from a specific event may vary between individuals depending on an individual’s specific learning outcomes”.
