Would love to hear from Queensland docs regarding the current Industrial Relations negotiations around the proposed SMO contracts by the QLD government. They seem like something to be very wary of.

ANZICS has written a concerned letter to the QLD government, particularly concerned about implications for intensivists.

Are you thinking of becoming an ICU trainee in Australia?

There are new trainee regulations coming that will affect trainee selection, first part examination exemptions and the in-training evaluation report for anyone registering with the College from January 1st 2014.

There is also a revamping of the curriculum to be announced.

Are you going to the SMACC GOLD Ultimate Ultrasound or Social Media workshops next March?

We want to make them as awesome and tailored as possible for you.
So please watch out for the pre-event survey that will be emailed to you. It will only take a minute or two to complete and it will help us make sure you are getting what you want.

The Intensive Care Network (ICN) has been developed to educate, link and stimulate healthcare professionals involved in critical care, based on what we believe to be one of the key characteristics of Intensive Care: the teamwork and collegiality that occurs when like-minded professionals share a common purpose. ICN has its beginnings in the Sydney Intensive Care Network (SIN), established in 2008. This forum sought to link the Sydney ICU trainees together through bi-monthly educational meetings. ICN hopes to replicate this model throughout Australia and New Zealand with a yearly Trainee Day where the opportunity for face to face networking is a reality. The ICN website contains a large library of exam materials, a lively discussion board and general information about training and working in this specialty in Australia and New Zealand. There is a regular Case of the Month and podcasts on ICU topics. More recently, we have begun to broadcast the bi-monthly meetings of the Sydney Intensive Care Network live online. If you can't make it to the meeting, don't fret, we'll post it up as a podcast shortly afterwards. In addition, there is advice, hints and tips on training, research and, for new Fellows, aspects outside of clinical duties to consider when starting off, from individuals who have been through these processes. For an overview of the contents of this site, browse through the search menu or the site map. Along with the growing library of topics, we also aim to highlight other useful resources for trainees and new specialists. There are conference and course calendars and a list of other useful websites, which we try as much as possible to review and rate. If you want to get involved, you can do so through the discussion forum, submitting comments on published articles or even sending in articles of your own for publication. If you know of a resource that you think might be useful for other ICU trainees or Fellows, or you host a site that you think critical care practitioners would find helpful, let us know and we'll review it and notify the rest of the community. If you are currently working in ICU or other Critical Care specialties, or are thinking of doing so, we would encourage you to Register Now for free to become part of the community and gain access to all areas of the site. You can keep in touch with updates through our Twitter and Facebook sites and our RSS feed and we will be sending out a regular Newsletter to all registered users who have subscribed to this.
