Jellybean 71 with Charlie Corke

CICM x JELLYBEAN The College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand has an Annual Scientific Meeting every year. In 2017 the title was “A Gut Reaction; ICU Gastroenterology from beginning to end.” The organising committee have embraced #FOAMed. The best lectures will be made available for FREE on the Intensive Care Network and on the CICM-ASM site. They invited Doug Lynch to come along and have a Jellybean style chat with the international speakers and Mr President Himself; it’s Charlie Corke.

College of Intensive Care Medicine x Jellybean

Number 1 in a special series of 4 Co-Branded Podcasts

Associate Professor Charlie Corke

President of the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (CICM).

The CICM is the worlds first stand alone College of Intensive Care Medicine. A/Prof Charlie Corke is the President. It is not an easy job to do. It is not an easy job to get. Charlie got there by a path less traveled and he talks about that path, among many other things, in this short interview recorded at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the College.

Each year the CICM holds its Annual Scientific Meeting. The Meeting has always been focused upon a single issue or organ system. This year the theme was Gastroenterology entitled “A Gut Reaction; ICU Gastroenterology from beginning to end.

The lectures presented at the meeting have been recorded and will all be shared among the delegates and some will also be shared with all comers via the Intensive Care Network (ICN), the celebrated “#FOAMed” website. (Free Open Access Medical Education.)

The organisers of the ASM invited #FOAMed podcaster/interviewer Dr Doug Lynch to come along to engage some of the leading lights of the meeting in conversation and record them. These recordings are the latest in a series of podcasts/blogcasts playfully called “Jellybeans”. They are entirely spontaneous chats with interesting people; short, completely unscripted, 100% unedited and recorded in one take. It is essentially a live recording. The focus is unapologetically on the quality of the conversation rather than the quality of the audio recording.

The host of the interview is a fast talking Irish doctor, a jack of all trades but a master of none, a perpetual student and a trainee of the CICM. The “Jellybean” is an itinerant podcast that regularly appears on LITFL, ICN and many other websites. Over 100 conversations have been recorded with persons of interest. They will appear on iTunes and Google play once the 100th episode is published later this year.

The CICM ASM Jellybean series each start with a biographical component and then the conversation follows its own path. The subject matter is usually that which dwells upon the fringes of intensive care medicine; human factors, education, ethics, equality, gender, personal histories, possible futures and all the other challenges that we so often face. Being so they compliment the lectures but do not attempt to repeat them.

We hope you enjoy finding out a little more about the people behind the CICM Annual Scientific Meeting. The four CICM x Jellybean co-branded recordings are part of a larger collection. It is only these four that are formally associated with the College.

The subjects of the 4 CICMxJellybeans are A/Prof Charlie Corke, Prof Jules Wendon, Prof John Marshall and Prof Lars Lundell.

Doug Lynch is not a representative of the college and any views expressed are his own…
