The Society often collaborates with other professional organizations as it responds to issues most relevant to the critical care community. SCCM's activities touch on many legislative, advocacy and educational issues, as well as various economic, political and social activities and causes. It is important to SCCM's leadership that efforts focus on activities most important to its members and that we work in tandem with other organizations to form a strong, unified voice.
