World Congress of Intensive Care focused on Diversity

Jorge Hidalgo

According to Doctor Hidalgo, the five-day congress discussed the issue of diversity to include small countries around the table since their needs are different. The World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine is determined to increase its membership is developing and less populated countries.


Dr. Jorge Hidalgo, Sec. Gen., W.F.S.I.C.C.M.

“The congress was held in Melbourne Australia with more or less eighty four countries participating and we discussed the matter of critical care. One of the most important points that the Federation is interested in is diversity. I mean like countries like us can have representation because before only big countries were represented but now they say that it is important for small countries to have a voice because our needs are completely different from probably  Japan or some other more developed countries. In the practice of Intensive and Critical Care medicine is like we are a team that means that normally the session now are an integrated session where we have doctors, nurses, physical therapists and respiratory therapists in a session combined. We share experiences. They help us with ideas how we can grow in our health system.”
