Intraoperative Cell Salvage (ICS) Education Workbook

This education workbook has been developed by the UK Cell Salvage Action Group (UKCSAG) to support the theoretical aspects of training for ICS.

The workbook includes background information relevant to the use of ICS e.g. basic haematology. It provides the learner with in-depth theory relating to ICS e.g. indications and contraindications, principles of use and the practicalities for each step of the process.

At the end of each section there are self directed learning questions intended to develop the learner’s awareness of their own organisation's ICS service.

The workbook is linked to the ICS Competency Assessments and can be downloaded as a complete document or as individual sections.

ICS Education Slides

The education slides have been written to accompany the ICS education workbook and are designed to be used as a teacher led introduction to the subject prior to practical training and completion of the education workbook and competency assessments.

The slides are designed to promote discussion and interactive teaching, rather than as a presentation or lecture and should be used in conjunction with questioning, group work tasks etc to allow on-going assessment of the trainees understanding of the subject matter.

Further information for all of the topics covered by the slides can be found in the ICS education workbook.

The slides can be downloaded as a complete set or in individual sections. There are also guidance notes to accompany the slides.
