Canadian Respiratory Journal - New Deputy Editor
I would like to thank John Muscedere for the fantastic job he has done as Associate Editor on behalf of our CCCS and congratulate him as the new Deputy Editor. I would also like to congratulate Alexis Turgeon and Brent Winston who have been appointed as Associate Editors. Alexis and Brent will oversee the review process for all submitted articles that have a primary critical care focus. As a reminder, all CCCS members are entitled to online access. You can register online by providing your CCCS membership number. You can also register to receive the table of contents for issues as they are released. Since we entered into this arrangement about 3 years ago, we have seen an increase in the number of submissions and published articles from critical care. Please take advantage of this excellent resource as a source of high quality information and for your own manuscripts.
Thanks again to John, Alexis and Brent!
Ebola Clinical Care Guidelines - A Guide for Clinicians in Canada (Report #2, October 28, 2014)
In response to the WHO declaration of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) invited the Canadian Critical Care Society (CCCS) and the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease Canada (AMMI) to develop clinical care guidelines to support clinicians in Canada who may be required to treat a patient suffering from the Ebola Virus Disease. CCCS and AMMI requested that the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) also be invited by PHAC to participate in the development of the guidelines. As a result, the current guidelines have been produced via a collaboration of efforts from all three of the societies.
