COVID-19 information resources for the OUH: Training Resources

We're supporting the OUH trust and the University of Oxford to respond quickly to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. We've brought together information that may help you.

Clinical Skills

e-ICM is particularly useful for trainees undertaking training in intensive care medicine but the content will also be of interest and use to anyone caring for critically ill patients, such as those from at risk groups suffering from the Coronavirus.

The aim of this project is to improve the delivery of acute Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) care across the rest of the UK, and to reduce mortality and ensure patient safety by better adherence to guidelines. 

A huge programme aligned to the Royal College of Anaesthetists anaesthetic curriculum, e-LA has sections on the airway and respiratory system, critical care and respiratory problems. 

The Pan London Critical Care Intravenous Therapy programme has been developed to deliver standardised teaching on the administration of intravenous (IV) medication in critical care.

Intensive Care Echo and Basic Lung Ultrasound (ICE-BLU) covers the theoretical knowledge required prior to undertaking hands-on training in basic echo and lung ultrasound in intensive care. The intended audience is intensive care and acute medicine doctors, anaesthetists and clinicians interested in assessment of the critically ill patient. 

This webinar will focus on 'What a Surgeon needs to know’ when presented with an acutely ill patient, so that they will be able to act effectively and efficiently. The ultimate aim will be to leave surgeons, operating outside their usual remit, with a safe and effective clinical practice.
