Clinical Fellowship ICU
The London Clinic Intensive Care Fellows program is pleased to announce a one year clinical Fellowship. The clinical commitment consists of 6 clinical days per month supporting the Consultants in Intensive Care and working within the ITU team. The remaining time will be spent working on quality improvement projects jointly supervised between ICM at the London Clinic and University College London Hospitals.
Previously, we have developed an app-based platform to provide stimulation and support for patients recovering from Critical Illness. The app, Senso, has been designed by the Healthcare Laboratory, at the Helen Hamlyn Centre, The Royal College of Art. Senso provides stimulation for patients through images, sounds and smells, and is a portal to provide communication between the Intensive Care Unit, patients and relatives. Senso is available at
the bedside, and has been tested extensively within the ITU community at several collaborating hospitals. We now intend to roll out the project and develop the app further. The ITU at UCH, which employs a full-time health psychologist Dr Dorothy Wade, has extensive experience in evaluating the psychological assessment, support and outcomes of critical care patients. We would like to formally evaluate the Senso app as an addition to our
psychological support programme, as well as auditing the use of a psychological assessment tool developed at UCH to create a psychological pathway for patients.
This post would be applicable to a Registrar grade trainee with anaesthetic skills, ICM experience wishing to take part in a one-year project. These posts have also supported applicants who wish to pursue a longer project with the intention of achieving a higher degree.
