Guidelines for Management of Tracheal Intubation in the Critically Ill Patient

The British Journal of Anaesthesia has just published Guidelines for management of tracheal intubation in the critically ill patient. These Guidelines provide best practice recommendations to airway management within the critically ill patient and are pertinent to all critical care and emergency nurses.

The BACCN was involved in the review process and actively endorses these Guidelines and advises that all critical care nurses read them and apply them to their practice.

The Guidelines can be downloaded at http://bjanaesthesia.org/article/S0007-0912(17)54060-X/pdf 

You can also access a special article on the Guidelines at Guidelines for the Management of Tracheal Intubation.pdf

Thank You

Level 1 Enhanced Care Competencies - Your Feedback Required!

Posted by Administrator on January 10, 2018

CONSULTATION OF LEVEL 1 ENHANCED CARE COMPETENCIES

FEEDBACK REQUIRED by 19th JANUARY 2018

The National Outreach Forum (NOrF) and the Critical Care Network National Leads (CC3N) have gathered a wide group of key stakeholders including the British Association of Critical Care Nurses (BACCN) to develop a practice focused competency framework for registered nurses and allied health professionals (AHPs) who care for level 1 patients in enhanced care areas.

These will complement the existing steps 1, 2 and 3 National Competency Frameworks for Adult Critical Care Nurses: http://www.cc3n.org.uk/competency-framework/4577977310.

These multi-professional competencies have been designed to support safe, compassionate and effective care and treatment to Level 1 patients within acute provider organisations. They are intended to compliment Trusts existing educational programmes and competency based training packages, to provide an evidenced based framework to assess the performance of registered nurses and AHP's with regular exposure to the Level 1 patient.

This is your opportunity to consult and provide feedback on this draft. We are circulating the document widely for consultation amongst our members, the plan is for publication in Spring 2018. The draft Guidance is here -  Level 1 Care Competencies Final Draft v2 Dec17.pdf

Please can you provide feedback to support@baccn.org by 19th January 2018.

Thank you

BACCN National Board Professional Advisors.
