The Short Course in Critical Infection (SCCI) is designed for the practicing intensivist and for those who manage critically ill patients.
This 2 day course provides a first principles understanding of the major infections that precipitate or complicate critical illness, as well as a focus on the practical management of scenarios that are unique to it.
Speakers include Martin Cullen, Nicole Gilroy, Tom Gottlieb, Jon Iredell, Jen Kok, Ian Seppelt, Tania Sorrell, John Turnidge and Vineet Nayyar. Topics cover a description of the organisms encountered, what goes on in the microbiology labs, host-response interactions and the implications of immunosuppression and some of the weapons we have at our disposal to deal with these nasties.
This activity has been accredited by ACEM CPD for a maximum of 6 points and by CICM as Category 2A—Passive Group Learning, 1 point per hour. It satisfies the MOPs/CPD criteria of RACP and RCPA.
