American College of Chest Physicians announces new Critical Care Institute

The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) announced today the formation of the new ACCP Critical Care Institute (ACCP-CCI) as a center of excellence within the ACCP, housing programs and initiatives related to critical care medicine. With the help of its founding partner, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) and other strategic partnerships, the ACCP-CCI will utilize a multidisciplinary team of experts and resources to address and anticipate challenges in critical care medicine for both health-care professionals and patients. The announcement was made during CHEST 2004, the 70th annual international scientific assembly of the ACCP, held October 23-28 in Seattle, WA.

"The ACCP has been at the forefront of critical care medicine for many years," said ACCP-CCI Chair Curtis N. Sessler, MD, FCCP. "The development of the ACCP-CCI not only illustrates the College's important role as a leader in critical care medicine, but also reinforces our commitment to practicing collaborative patient-focused care."

With the largest membership of critical care physicians in the world, the ACCP is cognizant of the difficult issues facing critical care medicine, including the critical care workforce shortage, medical errors and patient safety, and rising costs. Through the ACCP-CCI, the ACCP will address critical care issues internally by building on existing critical care educational programs and products, such as The CHEST Foundation Critical Care Family Assistance Program, the ACCP Critical Care Board Review Course and Syllabus, and the ACCP Special Program for Critical Care Fellows, as well as developing new critical care programs and products. Through strategic partnerships, the ACCP-CCI will provide leadership in promoting collaborative interprofessional patient-focused care in order to influence the culture of critical care medicine in the United States.
