I want to thank @HeatherBaid for moderating our #baccngreen twitter chat last week.  Sustainability in critical care involves responsible healthcare which does not put future financial, environmental and social resourcing at risk.  The BACCN in recognition that the current climate emergency is leading to a associated health emergency published a position statement on environmental sustainability . Single-use and other disposable items including mountains of PPE necessitated by the global COVID-19 pandemic has once again raised the question “How GREEN is your ICU”? I want to thank you all that took part especially as this will form part of ongoing research exploring the environmental sustainability issues in intensive care practice from the point of view of those working in intensive care or who are somehow connected to intensive care units. Please do get in touch with Heather for more information.

Please remember that you can use our usual Wakelet summary: to revisit some of the chatter and or support your CPD hours / reflections.

Our next twitter chat will be on 06/07 where we will be exploring the deteriorating obstetric / midwifery patient #baccnmidwifery

Thank you and let’s keep the conversation going….

BACCN Conference Director
