SAVEd anaesthesia & ICM

The Self-IsolAting Virtual Education project was set up by trainees who were self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic.
These virtual tutorials were created by either a trainee or a consultant in the North West deanery to help study for the IAC, primary, final anaesthesia & FICM exams. 
  • Tutorial videos: Click on each topic link, and it will direct you to the video of the tutorial.
  • Original slides: To gain access to the original slides, just click on the link next to each presentation. 
  • Feedback form: Click on the feedback form link next to each tutorial. Please complete this once you have finished the tutorial and you will be sent a confirmation message of completion for your portfolio.
  • CPD points: Completion of each presentation will be awarded with 0.5 local CPD points, approved by the NW deanery.

Weekly Live Zoom Tutorials 

We run weekly live zoom New Starter, Primary and Finals tutorials for all North West anaesthetic trainees. 
You will have been sent an invitation to join the weekly zoom sessions directly from Janet Coulson if you usually attend the New Starter, Primary or Finals tutorials. You should be released from clinical work during this allocated study time. 
These zoom sessions will involve running through a presentation on the allocated topic, followed by an interactive exam preparation session, which may involve running through MCQs, CRQs, SBAs, and maybe even some viva practice (group size dependant). 
Please can you remember to sign the electronic register for each zoom tutorial, and also complete the feedback form. Feedback is very important to us, so we can continue to improve how these tutorials are delivered. Thank you.
