New sessions added to Intensive Care Medicine e-learning programme

Posted on: December 17th, 2020 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has worked with the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine to develop 6 sessions for the Intensive Care Medicine e-learning programme.

The sessions take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete and comprise the following topics:

  • Care of the Collapsed Pregnant Patient
  • General Aspects of Obstetric Critical Care
  • Decision-making Surrounding Escalation of Treatment
  • Introduction to Intensive Care Medicine
  • Long-term Outcomes of Critical Illness.

There is also a specific COVID-19 session on decision-making surrounding escalation of critical care which is available in the Coronavirus e-learning programme.
The e-Learning for Intensive Care Medicine (e-ICM) programme provides 9 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.
While the resources will be particularly useful for trainees undertaking training in intensive care medicine, they will also be of interest to anyone caring for critically ill patients.

To access the sessions, please visit the Intensive Care Medicine programme page.
Further information about the project is also available via the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine website.

Learning Paths developed for Intensive Care Medicine e-learning programme

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has recently completed a review of the e-Learning for Intensive Care Medicine (e-ICM) Programme and as a result have developed two Learning Paths to enable users to quickly and easily access sessions. These are now available within the e-ICM Programme on the e-LfH Hub.

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 a 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.  Find out more here.

Further information regarding competency signoff can be found here.

New to ICU

This new 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 those undertaking foundation and core / Acute Care Common Stem (ACCS) training in ICM, or doctors who are interested in critical care.

The Intensive Care Medicine (e-ICM) is a programme of over 700 education sessions and over the first 18 months, e-ICM recorded over 50 000 session launches. This first phase of e-ICM has provided ICM curriculum coverage and is now complete. It includes the production of new content as well as updating some of the shared content from other programmes within HEE e-LfH.

However, we are now considering our next steps, so would value your views on the programme. Please complete the short survey which will take around 5-10 minutes to complete. You can go directly to the survey via or it can be found within the e-ICM programme. The survey will remain open until 22 October 2018.
