Short Course in Critical Infection 2012
The inaugural SCCI was held 11th & 12th May 2012 at the Sofitel Hotel in Sydney
The course is designed for the practising intensivist and all those who manage critically ill patients. This course provides a first principles understanding of the major infections that precipitate or complicate critical illness, as well as a focus on the practical management of scenarios that are unique to it.
It provides the knowledge of principles of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogenesis and therapy that allows the critical care specialist to understand future drugs and infections as they arise and serves as an update for those already skilled in managing severe infections in the ICU and immune compromised patient.
