What is Critical Care and Why Should You Care?
INSPIRE CCM, is a non-profit charitable advocacy organization that promotes delivery of Coordinated Compassionate Critical Care to every ICU patient. By raising public awareness, INSPIRE CCM advocates for the critically ill to receive the highest standard of care that saves lives and preserves the quality of those lives saved.
Through education and collaboration with health care professionals and patient advocacy groups, it is our mission to ensure that the public is informed about Critical Care as a discipline of medicine, and its role in providing the highest standard of care and the best practice models in the Intensive Care Unit. We urge health care professionals and hospital administrators to speak out and play an active role in making sure such care is delivered uniformly and led by critical care physicians in all hospitals throughout the nation.
We encourage you to help us achieve this goal by informing the public about Critical Care Medicine, and empowering the public to ensure the delivery of Coordinated Compassionate Critical Care to all critically ill patients.
Thank you for visiting us at INSPIRE CCM. We hope to hear from you soon with your ideas, comments, and suggestions.
