ICS State of the Art CUSIC Course 2015 : Stop poisoning patients with radiation

Adrian Wong

Critical care ultrasound is evolving. Previously the remit of enthusiasts, the use of ultrasound has become an invaluable tool which has the ability to guide clinical management.

The Focused Intensive Care Echocardiography (FICE) accreditation is now an established programme which allows clinicians to attain the skills and competencies required in a critical care setting. The Core Ultrasound Skills in Intensive Care (CUSIC) accreditation is designed to be an extension of this to modules involving lung, abdominal and vascular imaging.

Run by faculty comprising members of the ICS CUSIC Accreditation board, this 2-day course (5th and 6th Dec) maximises hands-on practical experience in small groups and is suitable for colleagues in acute specialties. It will cover all aspects of FICE and CUSIC.
