Welcome to the 31st Annual BACCN Conference 2016

We're taking BACCN North of the border to Scotland! Join us in Glasgow on the 19th and 20th September 2016 for the 31st Annual BACCN Conference.

The conference is titled Back to the Future for Intensive Care: Communicating and Caring in an e-ICU World and aims to bring together critical care professionals from across the UK to discuss, share and debate best practice, research and issues from across the critical care field. This two day event will offer over 40 different sessions including presentations from industry leaders, interactive workshops and our simulation lab. 

The conference title - Communicating and Caring in an e-ICU World. What's an e-ICU?

e-ICU can be interpreted for our conference title as the ever increasing "electronic world" where some units utilise virtual world technology for expert advice and training, for electronic systems including electronic notes/rosters and more regular use of email e-news and online bulletin board systems.

In this increasingly technologically heavy (advanced) world, the nature of care, and nursing, has not changed over the years as the teams caring for patients continue to require empathic human therapeutic approaches - verbally, non-verbally and at times physically through touch (hand holding etc). Users (all staff) of this eWorld still need to communicate and care with human, non-electronic compassion. Conference will explore this topic from the perspective of patient, family and carer.
