THE CCST IN INTENSIVE CARE MEDICINE

Competency-Based

Training and Assessment

PART I

A reference manual for trainees and trainers

Revisions and comments:

This version of the training programme is valid for 2001. It will be reviewed annually. Comments on the training programme are welcome, and should be directed to the chair of the ICBTICM


The joint cct in icm

The Joint-CCT in ICM

  • Joint = [ICM + Parent speciality]

  • Maximum duration: 33 months

  • Administratively, this made ICM a multiple subspeciality


Submission of joint cct icm programme to pmetb

Submission of Joint CCT ICM programme to PMETB

The solution


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

Entry from CAT, ACCS or CMT

Why plurality?

  • ICM Primary specialty

  • Founding principle in the curriculum

  • Selects the best doctors for Intensive Care Medicine

  • Permits future changes to the shape of the workforce

Intensive Care Medicine Stand Alone CCT


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

Why not appoint to both primary specialties in the same recruitment round?

  • 5 partner specialties and 14 Deaneries

  • UK Offers system is designed to prevent trainees holding more than 1 offer

  • Desirable to limit dual programmes to a single UoA

  • Trainees have time to consider their career choices


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

Why not have pre-defined dual programmes (“badging”)?

- Primary specialties and their CCT curricula are independent

- Programmes are dual since they contain competencies common to both specialties curricula

- Appointment to a primary specialty is according to that specialty’s selection criteria


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

  • Why not have pre-defined dual programmes (“badging”)?

    • - Specialty selection processes must select the best candidates for that specialty only

    • - Impossible to rank candidates if we try to combine scores from different selection processes

    • - Smaller specialties may have no access to ICM training due to lack of availability of a pre-defined programme

    • - ICM CCT output would be defined by service needs during training years


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

Worked example- pre-defined ICM/anaesthesia dual programme

- Applicants from ICM or from anaesthesia ST3

- ICM trainees have anaesthesia interview and anaesthesia trainees have ICM interview

- Each specialty selection process will have a highest ranked candidate

- Which trainee do we appoint?

- Specialty selection processes are not comparable since their criteria, format and content differ – apples and oranges

- A second “decider” interview is not fair since appointment to the second primary specialty would not be according to the criteria used to select all other successful trainees


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

  • Dual CCT’s Programme

  • ICM and one of five partner specialties

    • Emergency medicine

    • Acute medicine

    • Anaesthesia

    • Respiratory medicine

    • Renal medicine

  • Common competencies mean duration of the dual programme is not the sum of the individual competencies

  • Competencies gained in one programme can count towards the other

  • It is the programme that is dual not the CCT’s – these are separate and independent


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

Dual CCT’s Programme

  • Need to be successfully appointed to a programme in ICM and one of the partner specialties in different recruitment episodes

  • Can only apply for a second programmes in same Deanery

  • No seniority limit for application to dual programmes in 2013

  • If commence 2nd programme within 18 months of first then dual CCT’s

  • If greater than 18 months delay then CESR (CP) for second programme

  • ICM now a primary speciality, like any other primary speciality

  • Unlike any other primary speciality, we wished to retain strong links with multiple partner specialities (previously ‘parent’ specialities)

  • This required clarification of the mechanisms for appointment to, and of the conduct of, Dual CCTs, taking into account equity and equal opportunity of access for trainees from these partner specialities


Intensive care medicine national recruitment 2013

Key GMC condition: Equity and equal opportunity of access

  • Implication: Plurality of access

  • ICM training posts should be accessible by the best candidates regardless of partner speciality

  • Hypothecation / badging of ICM posts not possible

    • not equitable

    • national recruitment process cannot accommodate

Discussions with copmed gmc trustee colleges trainers

Discussions with COPMeD, GMC, Trustee Colleges, Trainers

  • Stepped recruitment accepted as best approach:

    • 18 month window between appointment to 1st and 2nd CCT

    • Avoids risk of appointment to separate Deaneries / UoAs for each CCT

    • Ensures top-ranked candidates appointed

      • Not feasible with concurrent independent recruitment

    • Allows trainees time to ‘settle in’ to first CCT

    • Allows trainers time to plan, review trainee progress

Recruitment key points

Recruitment key points

  • ICM now a primary speciality – like any other

    • Parent specialities now partner specialities

    • Therefore independent recruitment processes

  • Multidisciplinary ethos: hence Dual Programmes negotiated with GMC

    • Stepped appointment – 18 month window

    • CESR-CP after 18 months

  • Single CCT-ICM does not mean that trainees can only be intensive care specialists – dual CCTs permits practice in both specialities

  • This addresses the concern that the new programme might produce specialists for which there were too few consultant posts.

  • Workforce planning in progress to determine current and future balance between training numbers and available consultant posts
