The straight talking Di Stevens from the very interesting Darwin ICU.
The F Word.
Feminism and Intensive Care. Women and Intensive Care.
Di was asked to talk at the CICM ASM about women in ICU. Di got up on stage and danced to “Sisters are doin’ it for themselves” in front of a crowd of predominantly male intensivists. Guts were not lacking. Her talk was more wide ranging than the title suggested, covering more than just half of humanity. The greatest controversy however came from an unexpected source.
During her talk she questioned the future of “Dual-Trainees” in ICU which got the Social Media world rather excited. Upset really. Di and I got together and went over that and other controversies in a great JellyBean that could have gone on for hours touching on Retrieval Medicine, Indigenous Healthcare, Remote Area Intensive Care, Tele-Health and Intensive Care. It’s on.
