Ill Medical Patients’ Acute Care and Treatment

All the skills required to manage acute medical take in two days The IMPACT Course is a two-day course covering all aspects of core medical training to enhance trainee confidence in managing acute medical take.
What to expect IMPACT provides up-to-date, online e-learning as preparation for an intense two-day, in-person course. Key point presentations, workshops, “hands-on” skills stations and critically ill patient teaching are given by trained senior doctors in a supportive environment.
Across the UK IMPACT is available at 22 IMPACT Course Training Centres across the UK. Each of our centres deal directly with their own course bookings and can advise you of availability and course fees.

IMPACT is designed to improve patient safety by enhancing the skills of senior medical trainee doctors who manage acute medical admissions.

All major acute presentations are covered as IMPACT is mapped to the UK core medical curriculum.

IMPACT is aimed at IMT 1/2/3 level trainees in Acute Medicine, General Internal Medicine and Acute Care Common Stem (ACCS) programmes. 

Foundation doctors intending to embark on a career in any of the aforementioned specialties can undertake the course after completion of 8 months of acute medical specialties in their FY2 year but must bear in mind that the standard of teaching is pitched at IMT 1/2/3 level.

You should have successfully completed an Advanced Life Support (ALS) course before you attend an IMPACT Course.

“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”.
