About the Intensive Care Medicine programme

e-Learning for Intensive Care Medicine (e-ICM) is a joint programme between Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM). The programme provides 10 modules of resources (e-learning sessions, links to open access review articles, guidelines and multiple-choice questions) covering the syllabus for training in intensive care medicine. Whilst the resources will be particularly useful for trainees undertaking training in intensive care medicine, they will also be of interest and use to anyone caring for critically ill patients.

Some of the resources have been produced specifically for e-ICM but we have also made use of the most relevant and best content from other programmes within e-LfH. British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA) Education (formerly CEACCP) has also been a valuable source of quality content.

Further information about the project is available via the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine website.

Learning paths

The e-ICM Programme has three learning paths available on the e-LfH Hub, enabling users to quickly and easily access sessions. These are as follows:

Hard to reach areas of the curriculum

For all doctors in training either following or planning to follow the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in ICM.  This new e-ICM learning pathway helps provide background knowledge for those areas of the curriculum that have been identified as sometimes challenging to address through clinical exposure.  As well as providing this all in one easy to find place, completion of these sessions will be useful when mapping evidence to these curriculum items on the e-portfolio.

Further information regarding competency sign off can be found in this document.

FICM Competency Guidance >

New to ICU

This e-ICM learning pathway brings together sessions that introduce some of the key concepts and terminology regarding the care of critically ill patients.  The aim is to give an initial grounding from which you can explore the many other topics within the e-ICM programme.

The sessions will be of benefit to doctors, advanced critical care practitioners, nurses and Allied Health Professionals.  For doctors in training, this will include all who are interested in, or training in intensive care medicine.

Step Competency Framework (levels 1-3)

This learning path supports nurses working towards levels 1-3 of the steps competency framework.  Learners may wish to use this content as self-directed study, but it will also be useful to nurse educators in their teaching.  Further information regarding the steps competency framework is available below.
