The annual SICS education meeting is scheduled for the 9th September this year. Following excellent feedback from last year’s education meeting we are in the process of organising a programme to cover a range of topics pertinent to ICM practice for all stages of trainees, ANPs, AHPs, medical students and consultants.

We are running the medical student essay prize this year - 500 words, title 'Who should be admitted to intensive care?'

Trainee case presentation prize - 6min trainee presentations on an interesting ICU case, aimed at trainees below ST5, ideal for portfolio and CV.
