Best Practice for the Management of Intensivists in Training

Published 14/03/2024

Our recent ICM StR Survey highlighted concerns regarding the variability in the experiences of Intensivists in Training (IiTs) from medical and emergency medicine backgrounds compared to those from an anaesthetic background. The RCoA and FICM Training Committees felt it was important to outline the general principles on how these doctors should be supported by anaesthetic and critical care departments. There is complexity in providing such bespoke training and both training committees would like to thank their entire network of trainers for their hard work and dedication in supporting doctors from such diverse backgrounds. 

This guidance has been cascaded to all Anaesthetic and ICM Heads of School, Training Programme Directors, Regional Advisors, Deputy Regional Advisors, College Tutors, Faculty Tutors, Clinical Directors and Clinical Leads.
