The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s American College of Critical Care Medicine offers numerous guidelines to help ensure consistent, evidence-based care of critical care patients using the most up-to-date and relevant knowledge available.
The most recent guidelines released relate to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign and the ICU Liberation initiative. Both initiatives are dedicated to improving care worldwide, with the Surviving Sepsis Campaign aimed at reducing sepsis mortality and ICU Liberation focused on providing tools and resources to assess, treat and prevent pain, agitation and delirium (PAD). These guidelines have been translated into various languages to ensure worldwide distribution.
