Peri-Pandemic guidance on the reintroduction of FUSIC courses
As we see a reduction in COVID-19 related activity across the UK, focus has shifted to the reintroduction of previous practices, including educational training. This has led to some uncertainty regarding how FUSIC courses should be run during this time.
To ensure that candidates aren’t disadvantaged by the pandemic, we have temporarily removed the mandatory course requirement from the FUSIC training process and are developing online lecture content to be delivered as regular bespoke webinars. However, we believe strongly that face-to-face courses are valuable. And we want to restore them as soon as possible.
We have compiled this guidance on how course directors can safely run FUSIC courses, while ensuring adherence to local public health measures. This is not an official set of regulations; more a list of suggestions. Ultimately, feasibility of reintroducing educational training courses is a decision for individual Trusts. Below is a list of relevant requirements taken from www.gov.uk ‘social distancing’ and ‘working safely during coronavirus’ guidance (1,2)
