Roles/Aims

Engaging with health care authorities, service providers, and government is an essential part of the process highlighting for these agencies the needs of the critically ill and acting as a patient advocate. The Publications section of this website may be useful to you in some of your interactions with these agencies. The ICSI receives no central funding and relies on the annual subscription of its members, registration at meetings, and the support of the medical trade to continue these efforts. Membership is open to all health care professionals with an interest in intensive care medicine. If you would like to join the ICSI, go to the become a member section.  If you are an ICSI member in good standing you can avail of a reduced ESICM membership fee.
