This is the third in a special series of Jellybean Podcasts recorded at the College of Intensive Care Medicine’s Annual Scientific Meeting (#CICMASM2018) in Hobart, Tasmania.
Professor Michael Pinsky, Researcher extraordinaire and seemingly on the editorial board of almost every journal in critical care.
Michael Pinsky needs no introduction. Literally none.
Michael is a giant of North American and International Intensive Care research and practice. It is difficult to understate his achievements to date; hundreds of articles, hundreds of chapters and hundreds of lectures delivered at international conferences. The best person to tell you about Michael Pinsky is Michael Pinsky. Sit back and behold.
Here are the links to Michael’s talks at the ASM;
THE CICMxJB Collaboration.
In 2018 the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand held its Annual Scientific Meeting in Hobart, Tasmania. They invited the Jellybean Podcast along and asked us to interview the four international speakers.
The ASM was named “Into the heart of ICU”. The theme of the conference was critical care cardiology. This presented a great opportunity to reach across the parallel, but distinct, specialties of Adult and Paediatric Intensive Care Medicine and the organizers grabbed it with both hands.
Great credit should be given to Benoj Varghese, Allan Beswick, Hamish Jackson, David Cooper, Michael Ashbolt and David Ransley. Not only did they deliver a fascinating meeting they also attracted the highest number of delegates in the 15 year history of the ASM.
This theme was a perfect for the Hobart intensivists. Hobart is the smallest state capital in Australia with a population of less that 230,000 and only Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory has fewer residents. In spite of this Hobart and Launceston provide a remarkably broad range of services in every area of intensive care. The small team of highly qualified and broadly experienced intensive care physicians practice in a unique work environment. This is fitting as Tasmania as a whole is unique in so many ways.
It is also a credit to Charlie Corke and the CICM team led by Stephanie Gershon that the ASM goes from strength to strength and that they have made this step into the #FOAMed world.
The CICM ASM organisers requested that we interview the main international speakers but that doesn’t stop us doing what we usually do…. interview anyone with a good story. There will be 5 or 6 “normal” Jellybeans coming from the Hobart ASM. Photographs were taken and used with the permission of the interviewee.
