SCCM’s Annual Congress: Improving Patient Care

Stay abreast of new developments, obtain needed tools to help advance your knowledge and further your practice of critical care at the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s 36th Critical Care Congress. Regardless of your profession or role in the critical care team, the Congress will offer you a well-rounded perspective on the latest diagnosis and treatment of acute diseases and conditions common in the intensive care unit (ICU) environment.


The Society’s five-day Congress offers numerous cutting-edge sessions, hands-on workshops, informative symposia and exciting social engagements. Participants can enrich their experience by taking part in pre-Congress educational sessions and postgraduate review courses held on Friday, February 16 and/or Saturday, February 17. These sessions provide a cost-effective, convenient method to enhance your Congress educational experience.


Join seven internationally known leaders as they present engaging topics throughout the Plenary Sessions. Offered during unopposed timeframes, Plenary Sessions will offer participants the opportunity to listen to keynote addresses that promote important educational developments (see table 1).


A distinguished faculty has been assembled to present important sessions concerning topics such as cardiology, end of life, endocrinology, nutrition, hematology, infectious diseases, neurology, sepsis, trauma and others. Participants will obtain new perspectives on the etiology and management of clinical illnesses to optimize the care and outcomes of all critically ill and injured patients.
