This very much takes its inspiration from the work of the team over at Life in The Fast Lane which provides regular round ups of some of the many resources available via the internet which makes our learning easier.
We are attempting something similar here, but the difference is that the contributors are from specialties other than medicine. So we have paramedics, nurses, and physios to name just a few. They are all experienced in their fields, regular internet learners and Twitter users. Some have written articles and some have pointed out some of the resources they have come across on their internet travels.
This will be a bi-monthly effort initially. If it becomes popular and the hard working contributors can find the time then I hope it will become more regular.
I do want to emphasize that it is the work of the contributors that makes it work…..I am just the coordinator.
If you do feel you want to make a contribution in the future please get in touch with me via Twitter @ccpractitioner.
“Learn Zone is now live!
The Learn Zone provides BACCN members with the opportunity to take part in interactive e-learning which will provide CPD hours towards your NMC revalidation. The Learn Zone is a new initiative for existing or new BACCN members which will allow you to have access to education and learning resources relating to critical care practice. The learn zone consists of an e-learning tracheostomy module which includes simulation video clips which demonstrates the latest tracheostomy evidence based recommendations for nursing a patient with a tracheostomy. Upon successful completion of the module, the participant will gain a certificate for 2 CPD hours which can be used for NMC revalidation.

And finally Peter Yerbury sent me this message- ” For CREAD, I wanted to point you in the direction of a useful Twitter account @Gas_Craic and website called Propofology run by David Lyness, an Anaesthetist.
