The Department of Critical Care promotes multi-centre research with the Departments of Anaesthesia, Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine at the 20 hospitals affiliated with the University. We engage in collaborative and translational research with other clinical and biomedicine departments, Clinical Trials Networks, government and industry.
Our research priorities are grouped within several key themes, encompassing elements of all critical care disciplines. This multidisciplinary approach aims to increase the opportunities for researchers to collaborate and develop evidence-based, patient-focussed integrated models of care, based on demonstrated clinical and cost effectiveness, where a clear need has been identified.
