Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP)

CCrISP is a two-day, interactive course (including mandatory, pre-course e-learning) covering the practical skills and knowledge needed to look after surgical patients including those who are deteriorating or at risk of doing so.

Highly knowledgeable faculty from surgical and anaesthetic specialties will help you develop practical, theoretical and personal skills in a safe environment so that you can assess and manage critical situations in a systematic way.

CCrISP is relevant to all specialties, however, examples are predominantly taken from general surgical patients.  

RCS membership entitles you to a 20% discount on this course at the Royal College of Surgeons. Find out if you're eligible to join or transfer.

Suitability

This course is most suitable for CT1-2 and SAS grades.

Senior trainees are also welcome to attend a CCrISP course if they have not done so before.

Please note that FY1 trainees are not eligible to attend this course and should attend the START course instead. FY2 trainees are also not permitted to attend until they reach the final 2 months of their placement (June/July). FY2 trainees should be aware that the course has been designed specifically for CTs so they may find the face-to-face sessions challenging. All participants should take care to prepare as thoroughly as possible for the best chance of passing the course.

This course is open to trainees based outside the UK however if you do not have a UK postal address there will be an additional charge for the delivery of course materials.

Format

This is an assessed course and a certificate of completion will be awarded to successful participants.
