Resource-Limited Areas
Help SCCM bring better healthcare to parts of the world where resources are severely limited. Your gift provides aid and support to individuals and organizations delivering care in resource-limited settings. In addition, your donation allows SCCM to provide the materials and financial support needed to bring Fundamentals training programs to these areas to train nonintensivists on how to properly care for critically ill and injured patients during initial intake.

Sepsis Training
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that continues to be unrecognized or diagnosed too late. Bringing sepsis education and training to the forefront can exponentially reduce unnecessary fatalities. Your donation will support activities such as SCCM’s Surviving Sepsis Campaign, which emphasizes building awareness, improving diagnosis, educating healthcare professionals, and more. Your donation will also support scientific research and treatment programs for sepsis in resource-limited settings.

Quality Improvement
With your donation you can help liberate patients from struggles during their ICU stays and from issues that may linger afterward. Your gift will support SCCM’s collaboratives on ICU Liberation; patient-centered outcomes; THRIVE, which supports patients with post-intensive care syndrome; and more. Contributions also support SCCM’s American College of Critical Care Medicine, which develops clinical practice guidelines to optimize patient care.

Your gift enables SCCM to encourage continued research in critical care. Through Discovery, the Critical Care Research Network, SCCM fosters collaborative research among investigators to promote the advancement of critical care research, leading to improved outcomes for critically ill and injured patients. Donations help to increase research in the field and support a broad range of research projects, including research grants to young investigators. You can designate your gift for immediate use or to endow the SCCM-Weil Research Trust.

Disaster Relief Fund (New Program) 
Our newest program allows SCCM to respond quickly with products, services, and volunteers when critical care is severely impacted due to a natural or man-made disaster anywhere in the world. We don’t know when or where the next disaster will strike, but with your ongoing gifts, SCCM will be prepared whenever or wherever they happen.
