Critical Care Reviews Meetings

eCritical Care Reviews Meeting 2021

eCCR21 Logo

In what seems like a blink of an eye, the meeting has come and gone. Five major trials reported their results and another 14 major trials published in 2020 were presented by their chief investigators. We also had panel discussions on publishing during the pandemic and pilot trials, as well as our annual John Hinds Lecture.

Ourt thanks to our diverse faculty from across the world who joined us at all times of the day and night to make the programme work.

In 2022, we return home to Titanic Belfast for another three days of trial results, trial reviews and discussions on trial methodology, interpretation and publishing.
