Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP)

The CCrISP provider course we offer 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 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. 

Our priority is to provide training for doctors working for the NHS. Due to demand and limited availability we do not accept applications from doctors working overseas. 

** Applications will be made available on this webpage approximately four (3) months prior to course date – check back regularly during that period if interested in attending (ie beginning of March 2022 for beginning of July 2022 courses **

We do not maintain lists of ‘interested’ individuals or ‘waiting’ lists on this topic.
