A multiprofessional group of SCCM members trained more than 300 clinicians in September, returning to Lviv, Ukraine to provide Fundamental Critical Care Support: Surgical, ICU Liberation, and Advanced Critical Care Ultrasound courses.
Members of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) returned to Lviv, Ukraine, in September 2023 to provide advanced training courses that combined elements of its Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS): Surgical and ICU Liberation courses. With funding and support from the humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief, a multiprofessional group of SCCM members trained more than 300 clinicians to support patients who are admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) after surgical procedures to begin recovery and rehabilitation.
Following the successful ultrasound training SCCM held in March 2023, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine requested that SCCM return to Ukraine to provide FCCS: Surgical and ICU Liberation courses to clinicians, according to ICU Liberation team leader Jaspal Singh, MD, MS, FCCM, medical director of pulmonary and critical care education at Atrium Health in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. “They wanted the FCCS: Surgical course to provide fundamental skills in the stabilization of critically ill surgical patients and the ICU Liberation course to help move ICU patients more quickly from the ICU to lower levels of care to free up critical ICU capacity,” said Dr. Singh.
