Scientific programme

The programme is aimed at all critical care and anaesthesia nurses and allied health professionals from novice to expert level: clinicians, educators and researchers and share evidence-based practice in assessment and management of the critically ill and critical care education and training with professionals from around the world.

The scientific programme will showcase the best current critical care research, practice and educational approaches. For this Congress, we have added a few new presentation formats to provide valuable opportunities to network and engage with topic experts and also provide new opportunities for industry partners.
