Sarah Yong is an impressive person. Advocacy, Training, Representation and being a new fellow of the College of Intensive Care to boot.
Theres a lot to talk about when you sit down with Dr Sarah Yong. Let’s make it easy by focussing on three big issues;
Gender issues; Women in Intensive Care Network. www.womenintensive.org
Training issues; The Critical Care Collaborative and the Victorian Primary Examination Course for CICM. www.vpecc.com
Representation issues; New Fellows Rep on the Board of the College of Intensive Care Medicine. www.cicm.org
Where to start?
Women in Intensive Care Network www.womenintensive.org @WomenIntensive
If my sources are correct there pretty much the same number of women and men out there in the world. Further it seems that there are roughly the same number of women and men presenting to intensive care units. This pattern does not repeat itself in terms of the Intensive Care doctors.
Let’s talk about this. Let’s listen to the people that are raising awareness about this. The Women in Intensive Care are talking about it and publishing about it too. You may have heard about the Medical Journal of Australia article; “Female representation at Australasian specialty conferences”.
