Every person in British Columbia’s 30 intensive care units (ICUs) should experience high quality care. By working on both clinical and performance improvement, we and our partners across the health system are moving towards achieving this goal.
BC Critical Care Network
The BC Critical Care Network is open to all members of the critical care community across British Columbia.
By joining the Critical Care Network, you will have access to monthly meetings where discussions around areas such as clinical sharing, quality improvement, research and data contribute towards advancing the voice of critical care across the province.

Provincial Critical Care Services Executive Committee (CCSEC)
The Critical Care Services Executive Committee (CCSEC) provides a provincial forum to discuss and make recommendations on policy and strategies to improve the acceptability, appropriateness, accessibility, safety, and effectiveness of care for critically ill patients across the province. Please see the CCSEC Terms of Reference for more information.
Since March 2020, the Critical Care Services Executive Committee has supported the BC health system’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This involves collaboration to ensure high quality of care for COVID-19 patients who are critically ill.
The BC Centre for Disease Control provides up to date critical care information for healthcare workers in hospital settings and those caring for patients hospitalized or experiencing severe COVID-19.
