This is the first edition of the curriculum for a Postgraduate Diploma/Masters level qualification in Advanced Critical Care Practice.
It has been informed by and aligned to the National Education and Competence Framework for Advanced Critical Care Practitioners (Department of Health, March 2008) and The Advanced Practice Toolkit for Scotland (Scottish Government, June 2008).
The objective of the programme is to produce high quality patient-centred practitioners with appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable them to practice in Intensive Care Medicine.
This curriculum is applicable for trainees entering training from August 2015.
Consultation on 2023 FICM ACCP Curriculum update
The FICM ACCP sub-committee has completed an update of the 2015 FICM ACCP Curriculum. This update reflects the move of ACCPs away from the Medical Associated Professionals (MAP) group and to the Centre for Advanced Practice.
Thank you to all those who have provided comment. The consultation period has now ended and we are working on the final version, ready for publication.
