The revised RCEM PoCUS syllabus aims to empower trainees to gain, maintain, and progress in PoCUS competencies at a steady rate at a local/regional level. There is no longer need of logging an absolute number of scans, trying to complete triggered assessments, and the need for a one-off sign-off process.
Instead, it is moving more towards a dynamic competency model that increases in complexity with regular education, training, and practice. It encourages every training encounter and other learning opportunities to be used as evidence to progress and maintain competency levels. Additionally, the new process relies much more on well trained, resourced and supported local and regional trainers, and a more personalised and standardised process.
