Our new modules!
The Scottish Intensive Care Society Education and Training Group have created 3 new interactive learning modules freely available below. They cover many of the core learning objectives for trainees on their initial attachment to ICU though we welcome all interested in critical care to complete them.
Each module is based around a case and has a number of parts to enable you to easily access/cover all the constituent topics at any time and receive certificates for the sections completed. Just click on the images below to take you to the desired module, enter your details on the welcome page (used to generate your certificates) and then work your way through each module. Each module has a menu so that you can move to any section within that module.
Any personal details that you enter will be stored securely. Should you not wish them to be stored then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
