**The BDA and Critical Care Specialist Group (CCSG) are delighted to announce this new course**

Are you new(ish) to ICU dietetics? then this could be the course for you. The CCSG has developed the introduction to critical care dietetics to support foundational level learning.  The course aims to improve your awareness of the dietetic and physiological principles that are essential to working in the critical care setting, whilst supporting you to develop the confidence required to autonomously work in this environment.  The course will involve some pre-course learning hosted in the BDA Learning Zone followed by an interactive face-to-face study day where you will learn amongst peers as you work your way through a number of critical care scenarios, enabling you to practically apply the knowledge learnt in the pre-coursework and further develop your network of ICU colleagues.

The course is aimed at those new to working in critical care, especially those working in isolation without a team of critical care dietitians to support them. It is aimed primarily at band 6’s and 7’s who have just moved into the specialist of critical care or having to provide clinical cover to this area. They will be working in the area but not experienced.

Pre-course work:

Delegates will be asked to complete no more than 6 hours of pre-course learning, via an interactive workbook which will be hosted on the BDA Learning Zone.  The classroom event will build on the e-learning content and will provide participants the opportunity to ask questions, practically apply their learning, share local practice, and learn from others (including the ‘expert’ facilitators).
