If you are interested in becoming a member of faculty for IMPACT you must meet the following criteria:
Be a consultant, associate specialist or specialist training registrar (ST3 or above) in acute medicine or related specialities in possession of a MRCP, FRCA, FRCS (A&E) or other equivalent higher degree in medicine.
In some cases, and at the discretion of the course director, a suitable specialist nurse or allied healthcare professional (e.g. Resuscitation Officer) practising acute medicine can contribute to IMPACT. The majority of IMPACT faculty should be doctors.
Faculty must have undergone some form of instructor training prior to teaching on IMPACT. This can be a GIC course or any of the advanced life support courses referred to below or attendance at an IMPACT Instructor Training Day.
Ideally, faculty should have also attended an IMPACT Course as an observer. However, if they are known by the course director to be familiar with the content and teaching style employed by IMPACT, this is sufficient to allow participation in the faculty.
