Sustainable Careers for Advanced Critical Care Practitioners (ACCPs)

Study and professional leave

ACCPs will require study or professional leave to maintain their continual professional development in addition to SPA time. The FICM recommends 10 days of professional leave per year for a fulltime ACCP, with an agreed study budget. Part time ACCPs should have both the time and the study budget allocated on a prorata basis. Incorporation of the ACCP study budget into the staffing budget will allow ease of access to the funds.
