Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP)

CCrISP is a two-day, interactive course (including mandatory, pre-course eLearning) 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 both 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.

CCrISP is recommended in the ISCP for Core Surgery and eligible for HEE study leave applications.
