Overview

Medical Patient Acute Care and Treatment.

WARNING: This course may contain real people, real medicine and really make you think.

If you agree there must be more to emergency patient care than ABC’s and treating plastic mannequins, then this course will enable you move on to the reality of managing a medical take and allow you to apply all that medicine you have been longing to use; even improving your skills of communication (always difficult with dummies).

The IMPACT course is primarily aimed at trainees in Core Medical Training or Acute Care Common Stem (ST1&ST2)  Already popular throughout the UK and recognised by the medical Royal Colleges, this 2 day course will be held in the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.  Trainees in FY2 posts at the time of the course, November 2014, may not have the requisite acute medicine experience for the course.  Other courses are planned for March and June 2015.

The course concentrates on a number of essential components in the management of acutely ill patients, including respiratory disease, gastro-intestinal haemorrhage, chest pain, sepsis and renal failure, by the application of practical skills and scenario involvement. These topics are just a few examples in this highly informative course aimed at providing the clinical template for what you should know very soon after the beginning of run-through training.

Can you really manage without it?
