About the Course  

Resuscitation Course for Acute Medicine Practicing Physicians (ReCAPP) has been designed to provide a high-quality, interactive educational opportunity for Canadian practicing physicians who are involved in the initial or ongoing care of acutely unstable patients, increasingly cared for outside the walls of an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

This full-day course, delivered by a group of Canadian critical care physician-educators, will offer to its participants numerous opportunities for practice and formative feedback, in a non-judgmental, low-risk, informal learning environment. Our main goal is to create conditions where physicians can learn together and from each other how to care for their sickest patients, and ultimately, improve the quality of care received by critically ill patients.

Overall Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Perform common procedures required for the care of critically ill patients;
  • Discuss the latest, evidence-based changes in the management of critically ill patients;
  • Review their approach to common presentations of critically ill patients based on comparisons with their peers and topic experts’ views;
  • Perform key behaviors required for effective and timely team-based resuscitation of acutely unstable patients.

Content and format of this course is as follows:

  • Procedural Session
  • Latest Updates
  • Case-based Discussions
  • Manikin-based Simulation

Who Should Attend?

Any physicians (e.g., emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, etc.) involved intermittently or routinely in the care of acutely and severely ill patients (e.g., who may require a transfer to the ICU or are already admitted in an ICU), and who want to 1- practice or upscale clinical skills that they need but may use only sporadically, 2- advance their knowledge and skills within specific areas of practice, and/or 3- ensure they are up to date on a range of topics.
