The Society is providing medical equipment, supplies, and critical care educational resources, while also providing links to free education, including book chapters and online modules from its Fundamental Disaster Management (FDM) program. SCCM is in contact with local healthcare professionals to ensure that ongoing efforts are focused and impactful.

An Update on SCCM Relief Efforts in Ukraine

An Update on SCCM Relief Efforts in Ukraine

Earlier this week, SCCM reached out to nearly 600 critical care clinicians in Ukraine and the surrounding region to voice its support and offer the full breadth of its emergency response campaign. The email included links to free critical care educational resources targeted to mass casualty response strategies from SCCM’s LearnICU library. SCCM also requested information on conditions and needs of the medical community. Many have since reached out directly to SCCM to help leadership build a comprehensive list of contacts, understand the supplies and resources needed, and help formulate a targeted, strong emergency response.

As partners in this humanitarian response, SCCM and Direct Relief have received unprecedented support from donors, pharmaceutical companies, and other industry partners. As a result, the two organizations are mobilizing support quickly and coordinating the delivery of essential medical supplies, medications, and personal care items.

Again, I thank you for your support of our critical care colleagues as they work tirelessly during this humanitarian crisis. I am proud of the work we have accomplished in just a short time, but I know this is just the beginning of an ongoing, sustained effort to fulfill a duty to these clinical professionals and their patients. It is during these moments that SCCM’s mission to secure the highest-quality care for patients is most near to my heart.
