ICU Leadership Can Be Learned, So Learn from the Experts
A course for aspiring and practising intensive care unit (ICU) leaders will take place at Erasme University Hospital's Department of Intensive Care in Brussels in January 2017. Chaired by Prof. Jean-Louis Vincent and Prof. Paul Barach, this interactive course promises time for questions, debate and discussion.
The faculty members are Professors Jacques Creteur (Brussels, Belgium), Bertrand Guidet (Paris, France), Michael Quintel (Göttingen, Germany), Jukka Takala (Bern, Switzerland) and Hans van der Hoeven (Nijmegen, the Netherlands). Small group sessions with the experienced faculty will enhance the learning experience.
Who is the course for?
This course will attract participants from a variety of backgrounds and experience, including young, motivated doctors who see themselves moving forward in their chosen careers as intensivists into positions of leadership in the near (or more distant) future, through to more experienced physicians, who are perhaps already in leadership roles, but want to enhance their leadership skills and ability to get the most from their ICU teams, and eventually to improve their ICU outcomes. As an interactive course, there will be lots of time for questions, debate and discussion. Small group sessions with members of the experienced faculty will also be employed to enhance the learning experience.
Why do we need leadership skills?
Good leadership is essential for all aspects of the ICU. Quality of care, safety, research, teaching and work atmosphere are all dependent on leadership. This course aims to provide participants with techniques and strategies to help them become effective, quality leaders, which will have long-reaching impact beyond their personal daily management challenges through to the ICU team as a whole and to patients and their families. Value-based ICU leadership will also help encourage more (young) doctors and other members of the ICU team, for example, nurses, into the profession, which is much needed as the demand for intensive care continues to expand.
