The Bronchoscopy for Intensive Care and Acute Care (BrIC) Course is a multidisciplinary one-day hands-on training bronchoscopy course for those involved in acute care (anaesthetics, intensive care, emergency medicine and acute medicine), designed to improve practice using it for ICU and acute care indications, including airway management, airway haemorrhage, percutaneous tracheostomy and the non intubated patient. There is a large emphasis on simulated scenarios, patient safety and team working. The BrIC Course is predominantly workshop based, with hands-on practice, bronchoscopy simulator time for dedicated competency acquisition and team based scenarios. There is highly experienced international faculty and opportunity to test established and new devices.
The course is support by a number of Industry partners (Olympus, AMBU, Fisher & Paykel, Erbe) providing the latest equipment and educational tools for maintenance of skills acquired.
Places are limited and are allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Participants: Suitable for core trainees, ACCS trainees, registrars and consultants in ICU, Anaesthesia and Acute Medicine, particularly those with an interest in Intensive Care Medicine or advanced airway skills. From June 2017, there is parallel nursing track, run in conjunction with the main course by Senior Respiratory/ITU Endoscopy nurses.
