What is Critical Care?
Critical care units (CCUs) are specialist hospital wards that treat patients who are seriously ill and need constant monitoring. These patients might, for example, have problems with one or more vital organs or be unable to breathe without support.
The country’s focus on critical care services in England has increased because of Covid-19. A significant proportion of hospitalised patients with Covid-19 require help with breathing, including mechanical ventilation and other services critical care staff and units provide.
Delivering sufficient critical care capacity goes beyond physical infrastructures – such as having more beds and equipment – and requires sufficient numbers of trained and available staff.
The NHS Critical Care Virtual Summit: Future-Proofing ICU conference aims to celebrate the current efforts of ICU staff, in this time of unprecedented strain, via best practice and practical insight. We will also take a look at some key areas of potential improvement including:
- Understanding intensive care staffing, occupancy and capacity
- Infection control
- Crisis management and emergency preparedness
- Clinical Information Systems
NHS staff and services will continue to be tested to their limits over the coming months, this short but high-value session aims to bring peers together from across the UK to share best practice and outcomes.
Registration is now open and is free for all NHS staff.

Message from A Rifat Peskircioglu, Congress Organiser:
Millions of people burn every year and all suffer; some of them die and many are permanently disfigured. In addition, fire disasters occur frequently during daily life activities and also through forest fires caused by people which result in serious consequences.
Through this meeting, we are planning scientific and educational programs that will address a variety of cutting-edge issues in the field of burn injuries and fire disasters, with specific emphasis on state-of-the-art presentations that will examine current problems in great detail.
The Meeting venue will be Patalya Resort Hotel located at the Kizilcahamam district of Ankara, Turkey. Even though we would like to welcome you to Ankara in person, we would be equally pleased to meet you online and exchange ideas through a Zoom meeting if current situation remains unchanged.
Abstract submission will commence on January 15, 2021 and will end on June 15, 2021. As the Congress organizer, we invite you to submit abstracts before the deadline.
Please also note that all participants are required to register online. Detailed information is also available at www.burnmeeting2021.com.
