CCR24 and CCR Down Under


Perhaps THE most exciting event in the critical care events calendar is nearly upon us…

The Critical Care Reviews meeting, CCR24, launches on June 12th 2024 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

This is where the very best trials in critical care will be presented and discussed in depth. The most significant trials are typically simultaneously published in major journals while they are being presented, sparking discussion around the world. What happens here may shape the future of how we care for our critically ill patients.

You might not be able to jump on a plane and attend in Belfast in person, but you can attend via the CCR live stream (if you can afford it, please support the event by signing up for the virtual registration).

If you live on the other side of the world and dream of attending a CCR event in person, your wish will come true on December 10th & 11th, 2024. For the first time CCR will be held outside of Belfast, as the CCR Down Under event in Melbourne, Australia. The Edge in Federation square.

Registrations are now open, don’t miss out!


DISCLAIMER: I have no conflict of interest for the CCR24, other than having registered as an attendee. However, I am a co-convenor for the CCR Down Under event and I have been an invited presenter at previous CCR events.
