Chairman (2015 - Now)
 
 
Welcome to the website of the Hong Kong Society of Critical Care Medicine!
 
Following on the wise leadership of our past chairmen, the Hong Kong Society of Critical Care Medicine continued to prosper and serve the local ICU community.  Our Annual Scientific Meeting has become a regular activity.  Also, we are going to host a bi-annual health exhibition for the promotion of knowledge of critical illness in the general publics. 
 
I sincerely thank our editor-in-chief, Dr Shum Hoi-Ping, and his team.  With their relentless effort, this website continued to be a popular resource in communicating important information among ICU colleagues in Hong Kong.
 
The demand of health care is expected to increase in the coming years.  Our Society will continue to strive for development in skills and knowledge of intensive care for the benefit of our patients.
 
Most importantly, your support of our activities is paramount.

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!

Dear ICU friends,

A warm welcome to our new HKSCCM website!

First of all, for this website to become a reality, I must acknowledge the contributions of our website team headed by Dr CHAN King Chung Kenny, and our editorial board headed by Dr LAU Chun Wing Arthur. The present work is the fruit of the technical expertise, creativity and dedication of all team members, and I am sure you will enjoy this website!

The Hong Kong ICU Community used to be only loosely communicated. The aims of setting up this website are to promote communications and cooperation among different intensive care units (ICU), promote knowledge sharing among ICU professionals, as well as enhance the exchange among various professions in the healthcare field, including doctors, nurses and allied health staff. It is my hope that very soon, through better understanding as a result of this platform, we will open up bigger opportunities for further research collaboration to benefit our patients.

The design of this website is such that active participation of every ICU in Hong Kong is the one and only one "critical success factor". We welcome you to introduce to us your ICU, put up interesting ICU cases, and besides serious academic material, there is also a "Relax....." section for jokes, quotes, and old things related to the medical field. You may freely comment on the submissions of other people, or write-up on any ICU topics of interest to you to display on this website.

We always like to have your feedback, please email us your comments directly, or leave us a message in the Guestbook.

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


Yours sincerely,

Dr. YAN Wing Wa
