The START course is a one-day multidisciplinary course for all those who deal with critically ill patients requiring transfer - anaesthetists, intensivists, ODPs, critical care nurses and emergency medical personnel. It includes:

  • a full day of simulated practice of transferring critically ill patients in our high-fidelity simulation suite
  • a systematic approach to transfer, for both real life and exams
  • both inter- and intra-hospital scenarios
  • preparation of patients, transfer and reception
  • management of critical incidents on route
  • feedback on practical and human factor aspects.
