This website was created by a the Patient and Family Partnerships Committee of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group (CCCTG). The CCCTG is a group of Canadian researchers who work together to design and conduct their own studies to improve the care and outcomes of critically ill adults and children. The CCCTG has a 25+ year history of leading research that has improved the care of critically ill patients around the world, saving and improving lives. It has served as a role model for the development of similar research organizations around the world.
The Patient and Family Partnerships Committee was created to enable CCCTG to engage and develop meaningful partnerships with those most affected by critical illness — patients and families. Engagement gives a voice to patients and families to influence how research is done and how research results are used.
Our committee is co-chaired by a patient/family representative, and a CCCTG researcher.
