An unstable patient in your ED; you know he needs intubation, hemodynamic support and ICU care, but how do you get him there safely….?

Incorporate critical care knowledge with skills and attitude by coming to the 3 day Critical Care Course, which brings you all the content you need to manage a critical care patient in Emergency Department, combined with loads of simulation and workshops. The course is run by an excellent international faculty with Cliff Reid, Clare Richmond and many more renowned names in Critical Care and Simulation.

Not enough time for the full three-day course?
Choose the 1 day option, where you get a full day of case-based discussions, bringing you all the aspects of critical care you need to get your patient ready for ICU.

This course is all about advanced resuscitation and designed for experienced Emergency Physicians (SEH artsen KNMG). We cover RSI in detail, ventilation, inotropes, neuroprotection, sepsis, paediatrics and a bit of major trauma.

The course is excellent either before or after a Masterclass Critical Care, but is designed to be done on its own.

Course outline

Day 1: case-based discussions and content delivery. This day will bring you up to speed with all the recent evidence and controversies surrounding Critical Care in the Emergency Department, as well as refreshing the basics. This day is led by Dr. Cliff Reid.
Maximum of 60 participants.

Day 2 and 3: A combination of simulation and workshops will allow you to put the knowledge into practice. An important step to make things happen on your shop floor. A large group of faculty and extensive support staff led by Dr. Clare Richmond ensure individualised learning and a personal experience.
Maximum of 30 participants.

You can choose to attend the full 3 day course or, if you are limited in time, to only attend day 1.

ED Critical Care Course 1


Dr Cliff Reid Photo 1Day 1 will be led by Dr. Cliff Reid, a well-known Emergency Physician and retrieval consultant from Australia, who has been running these courses for years with great success in the UK, Australia, Sweden and Slovenia. He runs a blog at and is a gifted speaker at many international conferences such as SMACC and ASM around the topic of Critical Care.



richmondDay 2 and 3 will be led by Dr. Clare Richmond, another well-known Emergency Physician and retrieval consultant from Australia. She is a world expert in simulation for Emergency Medicine and Critical Care, including the prehospital environment, and has run many simulation programs at conferences such as SMACC and Developing EM, as well as being responsible for the simulation training at Sydney HEMS. She is a devoted mentor and faculty member for all of the MNSHA Masterclasses, so has a real insight into the Dutch EM system.


There will be another 5 – 6 faculty members, all experienced simulation educators and Emergency Physicians from several countries in Europe. Their names and stories will appear on the website shortly.
