Pre-forum workshops


Details: Date: Monday – Tuesday, 22 – 23 April 2019
Time: 1245 – 1800 (22 April 2019)
              0800 – 1800 (23 April 2019)

Target audience:Consultants practicing Intensive Care, Senior trainees in SICU/ MICU, Intensive Care, RCCM

Jointly developed by the BASIC collaboration (The Chinese University of Hong Kong) and the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), this international course has been conducted at multiple locations in a similar format to the original BASIC ICU course. This is a pre-conference workshop of the SG-ANZICS conference 2019.

This 2 day course has several components; including a pre and post course MCQ test, comprehensive structured lectures, demonstrations, small group discussions and practical skill stations and hands on interaction with dialysis machines at several skill station.

Synopsis: Participants can expect to complete the course with a thorough knowledge of conditions causing AKI, strategies for prevention and detection, supportive and disease specific therapies and renal replacement strategies and troubleshooting. They will be able to then deploy this knowledge in general, acute care and critical care areas.
Learning Objectives:
  • Applied renal physiology
  • Epidemiology of acute kidney injury
  • Acute kidney injury: causes, pathophysiology and management
  • Acute kidney injury and sepsis
  • Rhabdomyolysis

The curriculum is presented as a 2-day series of integrated lectures and didactic in-person skill stations that provides knowledge, guidance for decision making, and limited practice in some clinical procedures.
Synopsis: The PFCCS course is an in-depth and comprehensive programme aimed at improving paediatric care. Using the same hands-on, high-quality approach as Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS), this programme focuses intensely on the paediatric population. PFCCS accomplishes these goals by providing a balance of didactic lectures and hands-on skill stations while building on the participant’s basic paediatric knowledge. Those who have completed Basic Life Support (BCLS) and Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) or their equivalents will benefit from PFCCS, because much of the material covers the transition from initial patient resuscitation to arrival in the intensive care unit. Some of the unique features of the course include interactive case scenario-based lectures and skill stations specific to critically ill or injured children.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Prioritise assessment needs for the critically ill or injured infant and child
  2. Select appropriate diagnostic tests
  3. Identify and respond to significant changes in the unstable paediatric patient
  4. Recognise and initiate management of acute life-threatening conditions
  5. Determine the need for expert consultant and/or patient transfer and prepare the practitioner for completing optimal transfer
Schedule: Day 1 : 17 April 2019, from 8:00am to 5:30pm
Day 2 : 18 April 2019, from 8:00am to 5:30pm

Synopsis: Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) aims to improve patient care and outcomes during the critical first hours following neurological emergencies. ENLS promotes a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach using a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management. This course covers 14 protocols developed by Neurocritical Care Society.

The Neurosimulation Workshop complements and goes beyond the ENLS curriculum, employing small group High-Fidelity Simulations, Case Discussions and Interactive Hands-On stations at our Simulation lab (SIMTAC).
Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the specific clinical needs of patients in the early phases of neurological and neurosurgical emergencies
  2. Meet these needs by standardising the management using ENLS protocols
  3. Use of checklists to address important clinical points
  4. Use of checklists to improve handovers
  5. General Critical Care (e.g. airway and ventilation, pharmacotherapy)
