A Christmas Gift suggestion from our friend, Bernie
Our life-saving friend Bernie joins us in suggesting a Christmas gift option which will reflect your commitment to improving the care of critically ill patients and help us raise vital funds for our research grants.

Admittedly, we may not be as cool as those charities that offer goats and chickens as gifts at Christmas, but when we receive your donation we’ll send a personalised Christmas Greeting on your behalf and our appreciation to your nominated gift recipient.

Please complete the Christmas donation form and ensure it reaches us by Monday 15 December.

 A donation to intensive care research is a priceless gift.

Our thanks and best wishes for a happy and healthy Christmas and 2015.






Foundation awards Researchers more than $212,000 in Grants

Dr Gill Hood,   Foundation Chair (above) announced grants totalling more than $212,000 at the ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting gala dinner, held in Melbourne on Saturday,11 October.

The Foundation is dedicated to supporting research into intensive care and critical illness. Since 2000, it has granted over $2.8 million to researchers in Australia and NZ, funded through a combination of public donation and corporate support.  

In announcing the Grants, Dr Hood acknowledged the valuable  support of Fisher & Paykel, Covidien, Mayo and Baxter. She also commented on the Board's satisfaction that, in addition to the two Trainee Project Grant recipients,  four of the nine other Foundation Grants were awarded to novice researchers. Providing early opportunities for   talented young researchers to 'kick-start' their careers remains a priority for the Foundation.
