NSAICM Guidance for Trainers & Trainees

Initial Educational Supervisor (ES)/Trainee meeting

This should be within the 1st 2 weeks of the trainee starting the placement, during which a training plan should be set.

 

Every year a Core Level (CT1/2 & ACCS CT2/3) Trainee should complete:

  1. WPBAs (workplace based assessments) – for requirements see table overleaf and keep reading!
  2. An audit or evidence of research/high level presentation or publication(s).
  3. An MSF (one for anaesthesia, and one for ICM if completing a 3/12 slot).  Start these early as a minimum of 10 colleagues needed (12 in ACCS), 5 of whom should be senior medical/nursing staff.

Please check:

Workplace Based Assessments 

So what is expected?

The Core level syllabus is in 2 sections:

Prior to the ARCP of their CT1 year, trainees should complete the Basis of Anaesthetic Practice (including the ICM sign-off)

Trainees should complete the Basic Anaesthesia competencies prior to the ARCP of their CT2 year.

The ICM curriculum can be found here;

WBAs comprise DOPs, I-Cex, ACAT and CPD assessments and an MSF. A CUT form should be completed on the e-portfolio.

Documentation should include an Educational Training Record.
