About the ABACCUS team

Project ABaCCUS was started in 2016 as a program to spur the development of high-quality standardizing training in critical care ultrasound in the Edmonton Zone amongst practitioners in critical care medicine. From the development of educational resources to monthly ABaCCUS rounds, our hope is to gradually advance our providers to a new level of excellence in the application of CCUS. We have also assembled a strict educational research agenda to systematically produce and deliver a competency-based curriculum.

Our goal of developing rigorous US training in critical care medicine is not unique, as we have seen this need emerge in numerous other fields from trauma to internal medicine to transport/ retrieval medicine. The goal of the ABaCCUS team is to also support other departments/divisions and groups in seeking to realize their goals.
