You've heard the hype about the meeting, but not been before?

Check out this short video from the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2022. If you're interested in critical care trials, this is the meeting for you.

In June 2022, we hosted 5 major trial results, including LOVIT, SUDDICU, FIRST-ABC, PREPARE2 and CLASSIC, as well as meta analysis on vitamin C in sepsis and hypothermia for cardiac arrest. Four of the major trial result presentations were simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine or JAMA, and two systematic reviews & meta analysis were simultaneously published in NEJM Evidence. A further position paper was published in Nature Medicine.

This is a relative small, intimate, niche meeting. In 2022, delegates attended from 26 countries and every corner of the globe. If you plan on coming, please book as soon as possible to avoid disapointment. As our venue capacity is fixed, when tickets are sold out, we're full!

Our Philosophy

The Critical Care Reviews Meeting is a truly unique event, where our aim is to share science rather than make money. For those who can't attend in person, we will be livestreaming the event for free. All talks are recorded and made freely available on the CCR website. Our annual book, summarising the best trials of the previous year, is given to delegates and a pdf copy made freely available for downloading. For those who do make it, we aim to have a minimal impact on our environment, with carbon offsetting in the form of tree planting, no plastics, and a focus on local food. We provide unrivalled free on-site childcare, reduced maternity and paternity rates and a baby feeding area. We try to match scientific excellence with global equity and environmental responsibility. Critical Care Reviews is not-for-profit.

Further Details

The programme and faculty aren't available yet, but will be gradually added to between now and June. We may run workshops this year for the first time on Tuesday 13th. Hotel options, including reduced delegate rates, will be available soon.

The Science

While we take pride in providing a culturally rounded event, the Critical Care Reviews Meeting is a scientific conference, highlighting the best critical care trials in the world. We host major trial results and review the best trials of the previous 12 months. Every trial result is allocated a full 90 minute session, including 30 minutes for the results presentation, 15 minutes for an independent editorial, 10 minutes open questions and a 30 minute expert panel discussion. Reviews of previously published trials get 40 minutes, again with an independent editorial. In the mornings, we host major trial results; in the early afternoon we review major trials published over the preceding year; and in the late afternoon, we change pace with expert panel discussions on various aspects of trial methodology, design, interpertation, dissemination and publishing.

The Atmosphere

The vibe of our Meeting is different too, with a fusion of local live music and international world class science, housed within the stunning Titanic Belfast, where RMS Titanic and Olympic were built and launched into the North Atlantic waters. Our social programme matches our scientific programme, with superb night events, as well as early morning exercise options. Alternatively, take the time to explore our home city Belfast, which is remarkably vibrant and culturally rich. If you have time to stay for a few days or longer, get outside the city and explore the island - there are few more beautiful places in the world.

The Countdown has Begun


Meeting Facilities

Welcome to Titanic Belfast

Titanic Belfast is the home venue for the Critical Care Reviews Meeting. Opened in 2012 to coincide with the anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic, this incredible building is a physical match for the original ship, with bows projecting from each corner and standing the same height as the famous White Star ocean liner. Situated on the exact location where RMS Titanic was constructed, this iconic building overlooks the slipways where RMS Titanic and Olympic were launched into the Atlantic Ocean.

Please note there is no access to the Museum during the scientific programme.

Address:  1 Olympic Way, Queen's Road, Belfast BT3 9EP
