Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2021

Now in it's 9th year, the Critical Care Reviews Meeting brings the chief investigators for the best critical care trials of the previous year to Titanic, Belfast, to discuss their studies. We aim to decide whether these trials are sufficiently robust to support their findings and if we should consider changing practice on the basis of them. To help in this endeavour we invite world leading experts to provide independent editorial overviews and have panel discussions to delve deep into the specifics of each trial. In addition, we also have detailed discussions on research methodology, to encourage critical thinking about the scientific findings which form the basis of our clinical practice. It's not just about specific trials though; for 2021, we have a distinguished panel of trialists, methodologists, statisticians and clinicians provide insight into the mysteries of clinical trial interpretation. We also have the annual honorary John Hinds Trauma Lecture, and finish the meeting with the incredibly popular "Informal Chat", where the faculty and delegates congregate in the bar and an enormous, meandering discussion about all things critical care takes place.

As before, we are offering unrivalled free childcare and a baby feeding area, where the meeting will live streamed. For those post night shift in need of a rest, we provide a sleeping area to recuperate for a few hours as needed. All dietary requirements are catered for also. Please get in touch if you have any specific needs. 18 CPD points will be applied for in due course.
