    Dear SCCM DE Chapter Members:


    I hope that you are having a wonderful (and deservedly restful) summer. I am writing to inform you of an exciting volunteer opportunity this fall. Our education committee is looking forward to hosting a hybrid Fundamental Critical Care Support Course on September 11th, 2021 from 9am-5pm at Bayhealth Hospital Kent Campus (Dover, Delaware). The didactic (lecture and pre-test) portion of the course will be performed online independently by participants via SCCM. During the in-person portion, we will focus on rotating through 6 separate skills stations that provide participants with the training/basics to manage critically ill patients for the first 24hrs of hospital admission (until critical care consultation can be arranged). 


    We are looking for members who would be interested in volunteering their time (for either a full or half day) to help run a skills station. You would have a partner running the skills station with you, two SCCM approved faculty overseeing all the stations to address questions/concerns, and access to a very comprehensive instructor guide provided by SCCM. We would work to place you at a skills station that best matches your particular expertise/interests. Lunch will be provided. This is a great opportunity to meet other critical care professionals throughout the state, become more involved with SCCM, and can serve as category II CME. It is our hope to make this a yearly event where we can provide this valuable opportunity to learn the basics of critical care medicine to hospitalists, residents, and new ICU APPs/nurses, and other critical care team members statewide.
