Why do IMPACT?
Because IMPACT has been designed by senior doctors from many medical disciplines, including Acute Medicine, Respiratory Medicine, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Renal Medicine, Anaesthesia, Emergency Medicine and Intensive Care, the JRCPTB actively support trainees in acute and core medical specialties to undertake an IMPACT course. IMPACT has been successfully running throughout the UK since 2004.
IMPACT attracts enthusiastic senior doctors keen to teach their specialist areas. Dedicated Instructor Days are provided to make sure that the standard of IMPACT teaching is high. Feedback is provided by candidates on every single course in order to maintain standards. The quality of teaching on current IMPACT courses is graded good or excellent by the vast majority of trainees attending the course.
Every IMPACT Centre has a dedicated Course Director and Administrator. These people do their utmost to ensure that you have a good experience before, during and after a course. They are the first point of contact when you wish to undertake a course.
In addition, the National Co-ordinator for the IMPACT project is Elaine Millar. Elaine provides excellent administrative support to the Centres to ensure smooth running of the project both within the UK and abroad. If your query relates to the National Programme or how to achieve Instructor status, Elaine will be happy to help, firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPACT is available at 23 Course Centres across the UK, the Isle of Man, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland. Our Centre contact details and map are located under “Centres” section on our Home Page.
“I have just completed the face-to-face element of the course and just wanted to let you know that it was very well delivered and a valuable learning opportunity. Nigel and the rest of the faculty were supportive and enthusiastic teachers, delivering a well designed course. I am confident that consolidating my knowledge and skills through the IMPACT course has improved my confidence in the initial approach to acutely unwell medical patients”
“Congrats on a well thought out course that achieves its objective of getting medics to recognise the critically unwell patient and provide a system for addressing life threatening problems rather than getting tangled up in making a diagnosis while the patient gently expires in front of them”.
