Stage 1 equivalent training guidance
Stage learning outcome
- Provides safe and effective care for critically ill patients under close supervision
Experience and learning requirements
- A total of six months experience in Intensive Care Medicine is required. If only three months has been completed then a further three months will be needed. If extra time has been spent in ICU because of COVID then this experience can be counted where appropriately evidenced, as can some of the experience gained in a PICU job.
- the capabilities include recognition and initial management of the acutely ill child. This experience may be gained on a suitable resuscitation course
Examples of evidence
Evidence for this domain can be either:
- Evidence demonstrating achievement of FICM capability levels 2010 Curriculum Intermediate level competences signed off by the ICM faculty tutor, plus recognition of the acutely ill child and initial management of paediatric emergencies at FICM capability level 1 (may be evidenced by simulation training). You can view a (pdf) copy of Annex F (Intensive Care Medicine) of the 2010 curriculum here.
- Completion of stage 1 HALO for ICM (for those on the 2021 LLp and access to the EQ1B certificate).
- Evidence of 6 months training completed as ACCS, plus recognition of the acutely ill child and initial management of paediatric emergencies at FICM capability level 1 (may be evidenced by simulation training).
