At each Stage of training, all aspects of the curriculum should be deliverable by each region’s programme. It is recognised that the importance of some areas of practical training will vary with time as medical knowledge advances.
However, the programme within a region must allow trainees to gain a broad knowledge of Intensive Care Medicine. Specific elements and competencies in the curriculum will only be able to be delivered by placements in units providing specific sub-specialty ICU services (i.e. CICU, PICU, neuro-ICU).
