Welcome 2015

It seems ages since I was revising for my FFICM and set this blog up–though its only a matter of months–and this site has stood a bit stagnant. So, the first few months of this year will be do or break for this site. I hope build better coverage of the curriculum onto the site. I have quite a few revision notes that I will be looking over and editing for public consumption.

2015 has brought in other big changes for me. Later this week, I’ll be travelling to West Africa to help with the Ebola crisis for 7 weeks. While Ebola has been largely viewed and managed as a Public Health crisis, it is very much a critical illness. What an Intensivist can add to the situation has yet to be seen. I’ll be documenting my experiences on my other blog.

If you have any spare Christmas pennies, I’d be grateful if you could send them over to the guys at MSF who are doing a sterling work over in West Africa.

The First Night

I’ve had my first ever session on wordpress–and I like it!

I’m getting used to the functionality of the platform and working out how to make it work. I’m not to sure I’ve settled on the final theme yet…and I’m already tempted to part with some cash to make things a little more flexible…perhaps once I see how things pan-out and I’ve done a little more revision!

My major achievement has been to add the whole of the FFICM curriculum as categories and then form a menu. The menu appears somewhat cumbersome, and I’m not too sure it its going to be as functional as I intended. The idea of mapping to a curriculum always makes my spine shiver–but, this is a revision site, and if I don’t stick to the curriculum, I’ll end up just focusing on the trendy topics.

So there you have it, I have a structure and I’ve got a feel for how it works, the next step is to start populating the pages with some resources…
