If you're not doing these, you're not doing it right.
Our facilitated courses are designed to help you learn. We utilise what we know about cognitive science to help you retain and transfer your knowledge to the care of your patients. These strategies are at the level of desired difficulties, necessary for deep and long term learning. In addition to learning about the fundamentals of ICU, we hope that you will also use this opportunity to learn how to learn effectively.
We will elaborate on some of the concepts here. Practising these learning habits, although difficult at first, will serve you well in the long run.

Same amount of time, distributed over a period of time, is a lot more effective for retention (and later transfer of that learning into your everyday problem-solving).
Although counter intuitive, mixing your learning helps with deep learning.
