Dr Ignacio Martin-Loeches was commended for his work in organising the recent 23rd International Symposium on Infections in the Critically Ill patient. The Kate Flynn prize organised in association with the ICSI worked well and the quality of case presentations was well received by the visiting speakers. The next meetings are the Refresher Course (organised by Dr Donal Ryan) on the 26th April and the IDAP course on the 4th May – organised by Dr Ian Conrick-Martin. JFICMI trainees are reminded of the requirement to participate in the IDAP course as specialist expertise in the clinical scenarios surrounding Brain Death is regarded by the Joint faculty as a required, core competency of ICM training.
The ASM of the ICSI takes place on 8th and 9th June and two distinguished visitors were approved for the awarding of Honorary Fellowships.
