About

What makes our conference different? It’s casual & fun and we like to talk about things that you won’t hear at other conferences. We always feature a former patient who speaks about their experiences in the healthcare system. We also talk about things that make some people uncomfortable but need to be discussed. Registration is limited so that you will have the chance to interact with world renowned International faculty in an informal setting. Plus our event takes place in one of the most beautiful natural environments in the world!

Our mission is to deliver educational programs which address the needs of critical care physicians and other health care professionals from around the world. The conference promotes excellence and addresses the challenge of providing appropriate care in the most effective and efficient manner to the critically ill patient.

This conference is accredited for CME credits with the Royal College through the CAS. It is also accredited by AACME and the JFICM.
