Dear ICU friends, 

A warm welcome to our HKSCCM website! It has been four years since the establishment of this website. With active contributions of our website team headed by Dr CHAN King Chung Kenny, and our editorial board headed by Dr LAU Chun Wing Arthur, the website has gained its reputation and popularity. Many local ICU colleagues submitted many relevant materials to be posted on the website, in particular the “interesting cases” sessions where the clinical information and imaging of challenging cases are shared. The “journal update” kept us updated about the essential finding and current trend of practice as reviewed in literature. It is therefore no wonder that the content hit rate almost reaches 4.6 million at the time of writing of this message! 

In year 2013, HKSCCM will enter a new era by celebrating its 30th anniversary. A list of programs will be conducted to publicize critical care medicine to the community, and a dedicated book collecting those heart-catching ICU stories and educational articles will be published as well. At the same time, HKSCCM will continue to serve the ICU professional by hosting regular academic activities, and to sponsor fellow ICU colleagues via Critical Care Medicine Foundation fellow colleagues to attend relevant local training courses and scientific meetings. There is a vision to strengthen and energize the ICU community to face the growing challenges from clinical service, while at the same time to enhance communication with the public through education and sharing. 

Without the generous support from you, the mission will never be possible 

Let's join hands to unite our Hong Kong ICU community!
