About Canadian Critical Care Review (CCCR) 

What is this program about?
The Canadian Critical Care Review is held annually and is designed specifically to meet the educational needs of practicing intensivists and critical care trainees. It addresses the clinical challenges faced both during the Royal College subspecialty examinations in critical care and in professional practice. The review course is intended as a knowledge consolidation and assessment exercise.

Who would benefit from this course?
Practicing intensivists, critical care trainees, nurses and respiratory therapists who work in critical care units.

What topics are covered?
Core topics are presented each year covering the major specialty areas within Critical Care Medicine. 

How are the topics chosen?
Each year participants to the review course complete a needs assessment that allow the organizing committee to identify core topics. The top topics are ranked and a 2-year rotating program is designed to encompass the top 30-35 domains.

Who are the speakers?

Speakers are chosen from educational institutions across Canada and are selected based on their expertise and familiarity with each selected topic.

Please note, the Canadian Critical Care Review is not sponsored by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. All Royal College examiners have been excluded from participating with this program or providing any input into the selected topics and contents of the material covered within each topic.
