The haemodynamic monitoring pathway for NEXT will support the NEXT generation of intensivists in their efforts of continuous professional development, undertaken to provide appropriate care to their patients.

In a disrupted normality induced by the COVID-19 pandemic, where intensive care personnel is heavily challenged, the Haemodynamic Monitoring pathway supported by EDWARDS will support junior intensivists in their quest to learn and improve their practice in one of the core pillars of intensive care medicine, with the final aim of improved clinical performance and better patient outcome.

The programme will open on January 3rd, 2022. All those who have been selected will be enrolled in the pathway dedicated online platform where they can access all the information regarding the different learning components. 

The 1st STEP will be the PRE-TEST completion. Deadline: January 19, 2022, the day of the 1st webinar. 

The training programme includes

  • A total of 3 webinars (January 19/March 16/May 25, 2022) 
  • A 2 day face-to-face course at the ESICM headquarters in Brussels (July 6-7, 2022) where theory is reinforced through clinical case workshops, small group collaborative work, problem-solving exercises and practical activities. To this event the best 50 scoring participants will be invited to participate. They will benefit from FREE ENTRY to the course in Brussels
  • Practical hands-on during LIVES in Paris (October 22-26, 2022).

The programme will cover basics of physiology, variables and how to interpret them, haemodynamic monitoring, fluid and drug therapy, technical solutions and monitoring devices. Continuous evaluation will be carried out. 

Participants will benefit from an innovative learning experience, which helps them to develop both their knowledge and skills on Haemodynamic Monitoring.

This Educational Pathway is aimed at the young generation of intensive care physicians.

To apply for the NEXT Haemodynamic Monitoring Pathway, you should:

  • be an ESICM member
  • be a junior intensivist ≤ 37 years old
  • look to improve your knowledge and skills

The registration process is open until Wednesday, 1 December, 2021.
