Course Content

Each course involves a range of educational modalities.

Pre-course work will be sent to you by email – including attached PDF documents and links to websites and videos.  Much of the information can be found on the Resources pages.

On the day presentations are kept to a minimum, whilst ensuring main concepts are understood.  The rest of each course is split between small group workshops; case based discussions or immersive simulations.  The blend of activities allow participants to practice practical skills; ask questions as well as sharing experiences and  tips and tricks.  All courses have immersive group simulations with facilitated debriefing.  We find that the simulations allow everyone to reflect on the interplay of clinical expertise, practical skills and human factors in clinical crisis management.

For specific information on the content of each course, please refer to the individual CICO Cardiac ArrestMajor Haemorrhage or Anaphylaxis course page.
