UKCCRF: who we are…

The UK Critical Care Research Forum (UKCCRF) was established in 2008 and is open to all who are interested in undertaking research in critical and emergency care in the UK. The main objective of the UKCCRF is to advance the field of critical care research and enhance patient outcome and care, translating knowledge into practice.

The forum meets annually to: share and critically review new study proposals; to share updates on the progress of ongoing studies; and to discuss research methodologies.

This is a two-day event organised by a different host each year with support from a committee of consultants, nurses, allied health care professionals and researchers in critical care and emergency medicine.
