For four days, 25 intensive care physicians from all over the country participated in the course for professionals in emergency services and intensive care, dictated by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada - International in coordination with the National School of Public Health (ENSAP), reported the Ministry of Health (Minsa).

It is the F-ACES (Facilitation - Acute Critical Events Simulation), which will help improve and optimize the knowledge and clinical reasoning skills necessary to quickly recognize and manage medical emergencies, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The participants were selected, according to a profile, by the ENSAP at the national level among specialists in internal medicine, intensive medicine, emergency and disaster medicine, infectious and tropical disease medicine, anesthesiology, bioengineering, neurology and pulmonology.

Doctors provide services in the health establishments of the Minsa and EsSalud, as well as the Armed Forces; and they come from Huánuco, Piura, Ucayali, La Libertad, Tacna and Ayacucho.

It is planned that at the end of this training, the organizers will select three doctors to qualify as instructors of the course, the same one that is being internationally licensed by ENSAP, which will make it possible for more health professionals to be trained in Peru.

At the opening of the event, held via Zoom, from Ottawa were present Dr. Roberto Rodríguez Arnillas, Ambassador of Peru in Canada; and Dr. Craig Ceppetelli, Executive Director of the International Collaboration Office of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
