Edmonton Zone CCUS Strategy

Our program in CCUS took its first steps in September 2016. Beginning with Edmonton-wide CCUS rounds, we have embarked upon a multi-year strategy to provide high quality training and support to critical care physicians, fellows and nurse practitioners. CCUS demonstrates great promise in improving care of the critically ill, especially where it is needed most, at the bedside.

Over the course of the next several years, we will be looking to implement a digital imaging repository (QPATH), develop a CCUS rotation, set individual CCUS portfolio targets, and provide robust training to skilled critical care professionals. We hope to provide training in the Edmonton Zone and in the future, throughout the province.
