We are always keen to engage with people and there are many ways that you can get involved in our Network. If you are interested in getting involved see below;
Network meetings or COG’s (Clinical oversight groups)
We hold six meetings a year and each unit in the Network gets the opportunity to host. At theses meeting as well as having the chance to meet with your colleagues we discuss the Network business, develop our work streams, and have some education input. Please feel free to come along. For 2017/18 dates see events and if you are able to host please get in contact with us.
As well as attending the training, there is also an opportunity for you to join our transfer training faculty. This is made up of doctors and Nurses from our Network who provides the teaching and facilitation of our workshops on our transfer training courses. This means you will be supporting the safe transfer of patients across London, and enables you to meet and Network with colleagues from across fifteen Critical Care Units in North East and North Central London. For more information please contact Dr Ferenc Kovari who is our Transfer Training lead for the Network or Rose Tobin, Network Manager firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the dates of our Training days see events.
If you would like to take part in the Peer Review and have your unit reviewed please let us know. As well as having your unit reviewed you could be part of the panel which would provide you with the opportunity of visiting another unit in London meet with your colleagues and give feedback on how that unit works. This provides an ideal opportunity for learning and developing and improving your reviewing skills.
For dates of our upcoming peer reviews see events.
