Sustainable Careers for Advanced Critical Care Practitioners (ACCPs)

Published 10/01/2023


Taking on the role of ACCP represents a complete career shift for the majority of individuals starting their trainee and trained ACCP careers. For most staff this can be a challenging time. The FICM recommends that staff new to the role have an experienced ACCP mentor for personal, professional, and psychological guidance, support, and mentorship. For units that do not have an experienced ACCP, alternative arrangements may include an experienced ACCP in another critical care unit in the same or neighbouring Critical Care Operational Delivery Network.
