CICM 2015 ASM - Wrap Up
The 11th CICM Annual Scientific Meeting was held from 28 – 31 May at the Darwin Convention Centre, the theme was Catch the Bug - Battling Infectious Disease in ICU.
Ably led by Associate Professor Dianne Stephens, the single- theme program proved a perfect opportunity for prominent international and Australian experts to present, exchange information and provide a global perspective on infectious disease.
 
The social functions proved to be a great opportunity for people to network, relax and catch up with colleagues. The welcome function provided the opportunity to sample some local Darwin cuisine whilst patting a baby croc and snake!
 
The ASM Dinner and Graduation Ceremony was a great success – with a warm but wet evening overlooking the Arafura Sea. The College welcomed 23 New Fellows.
 
Thank you to our sponsors, exhibitors, delegates and all who supported the event.
The video of ASM presentations will be made available on the members portal shortly. 

CICM Events
Fellow Education Workshops
The College is running a series of educational workshops for CICM Supervisors and Fellows. The workshop includes trainee mapping exercises with a focus on individual trainee’s predicted training pathway for the next few years and to identify required non ICU rotations, and to assist Supervisors in giving realistic advice to trainees about their training plans. The day will also include a professional development session in the afternoon with simulation activities with actors. The regional committees will be asked to provide input on the content of these afternoon sessions.
 
The workshops provide an opportunity for networking and sharing of common education and training issues and potential solutions.

Winner of Overseas Aid Grant 2014
Written by Cynthia Bierl.

Bula!
 
The Overseas Aid Committee has introduced a grant for Post-graduate Fellows to partake in experiences in critical care in low resource settings. I was fortunate to get the first of these grants and I used it to work for 3 months in Fiji under the guidance of Dr. Lisa Bennett, a FCICM/FANZCA whom has been working in Suva with Fiji National University for over a decade helping to build a critical care training program.
