The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. This year, #GivingTuesday will take place on November 28, 2017.
By choosing SCCM on #GivingTuesday, you will support its efforts to improve critical care medicine around the world and secure the highest-quality care for all critically ill and injured patients. The Society is grateful for all donations, whether from generous individuals, corporations, or foundations. While donations can be made unrestricted, you may direct your donation to one of the essential programs listed below, each of which focuses on improving care in the intensive care unit (ICU) around the world.
Bring better healthcare to parts of the world where resources are severely limited. Your gift will help SCCM to provide support to individuals and organizations delivering care in resource-limited through materials and financial support needed to bring vital training to these areas to train non-intensivists on how to properly care for critically ill and injured patients during initial intake, a time in which proper care is vital to survival.

Sepsis Research and Training
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that continues to be unrecognized or diagnosed too late. Bringing sepsis education to the forefront can exponentially reduce unnecessary fatalities. Your gifts in this area 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. Learn more.
Liberating patients from struggles during their ICU stay and from issues that may linger afterward occurs through improving the quality of their care. As part of this initiative, SCCM’s American College of Critical Care Medicine develops clinical practice guidelines that include recommendations intended to optimize patient care. SCCM has also developed a series of collaboratives and teamed up with ICUs to implement quality improvement initiatives that provide tangible results. Learn more.
Invest in Research
Research paves the way to better critical care, and your gift in this area 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. Learn more.
