At the Intensive Care Foundation we are dedicated to improving the care of critically ill patients, through funding vital research. Our overall aim is to improve the number of lives saved and the quality of those lives, for those who find themselves in intensive care.
The Foundation had a presence at the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting, held in Cairns in early June. The Meeting, organised by the Australian and New Zealand College of Intensive Care Medicine, had as its key theme, Trauma and covered a variety of aspects including Injury, Severity and Treatment.
The Foundation’s newly appointed Chief Executive, Ian Higgins (left) recently met with Adam Golabek, Head of Partnerships for the Avant Mutual Group.Through their sponsorship of the Intensive Care Foundation, Avant are supporting the Foundations annual research grants.
