The Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) hosted Fundamental Critical Care Support: Resource Limited (FCCS: RL) course combines expert-developed lectures with interactive skill stations to prepare healthcare professionals for the unique challenges faced when resources are limited and the impact these limitations have on providing critical care.

The FCCS: RL course is designed for healthcare professionals who may encounter critically ill or injured patients in resource-limited environments. Participants will learn about managing resource limitations, resource allocation, triage, and ethical implications. The course focuses on a minimum-better-best paradigm for identifying monitoring and treatment strategies in the setting of austerity or resource limitation. Caregivers must have a clear understanding of available medical experience and skills, evacuation capabilities and timelines, equipment, medications, and other supplies.
A key aspect of FCCS: RL is the use of telemedicine to obtain essential subspecialty advice and procedural guidance when transport is delayed.
The course features:
  • In-person learning format
  • Interactive presentations
  • Case-based skill stations
  • Pre- and posttests
  • Companion textbook
  • Certificate of successful course completion
  • Continuing education credit hours (if offered by the course site)

Contact the SCCM Hosted Training Team to learn more about
bringing training to your institution. 

FCCS: RL is available in a live, hosted format for institutions to provide training for healthcare professionals.

To receive the certificate of successful completion, course participants must attend all didactic lectures, successfully complete all skill stations, and achieve a score of 70% or higher on the posttest.
