Aims and Structure

This resource represents a collation of relevant educational materials from the peer reviewed publications, national guidelines (both UK and international), e-learning websites, Royal College audit guidelines, and online webinars.  These resources have been mapped to broad sections of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) Curriculum for a CCT in Anaesthetics and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) curriculum for a CCT in Intensive Care Medicine. The council of NACCS aims to support education in neuro-anaesthesia and intensive care in the UK and this resource is aimed at supporting the UK specialty training programmes. This resource has been approved by both the RCoA and the FFICM.

However, it should be recognised that this mapping is approximate and that resources may not exhaustively cover all relevant material within each subsection.  For ease of reference, RCoA curriculum points are in blue text with FICM points in purple.

Where possible all resources are hyperlinked but it is possible that access to certain resources may be restricted dependent on individual circumstances (e.g. individual/institutional access to relevant articles or online resources).  Where possible we have tried to indicate multiple sources to cover each area.

Videos from NACCS events are embedded were possible.

Each section has a feedback facility and so the content can be commented on by users and users may suggest new relevant content for consideration.


NACCS is not responsible for the maintenance and content of external websites.  Inclusion here represents that these are suggested relevant educational materials; they are not obligatory for training and they do not represent a completely comprehensive set of educational materials for the practice of neuroanaesthesia and ICU.
