ICU Transition and Advanced Airway Skills Course
Gaining increased responsibility in an ICU environment can be daunting for junior doctors, registrars and trainees as they learn to manage multiple patients simultaneously and navigate the intense workings of a multidisciplinary team.
The Mater Education ICU Transition and Advanced Airway Skills course has been designed to ease this transition, delivering the tools and guidance needed to work with confidence in critical care. Taught by our team of highly skilled ICU doctors and nurses, the course takes participants through a series of workshops, simulations, small group activities and skill stations (cadaver-based) that help to consolidate learnings with real-life application
