Educational Series to Discuss Advanced Practice Providers in the ICU

The demand for and implementation of advanced practice providers (APPs)  — such as nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs)  — in the intensive care unit (ICU) has generated great interest in the healthcare community in general and the medical community in particular. In the new Advanced Practice Providers: Administration, Leadership and Outcomes series from the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), speakers will bring their local and national expertise to a variety of subject areas, providing participants with the comprehensive view needed to establish a multiprofessional ICU provider team.

This four-part educational series sponsored by SCCM’s eLearning NP/PA Task Force will feature three webcasts and a live, half-day course and is designed to provide information on building an APP service model.

Webcasts
The webcasts cover a spectrum of topics on designing, initiating and maintaining a skilled APP program.
