The Critical Care advanced practitioner meeting is an excellent opportunity for all critical care pharmacists to learn, network and update their practice. As in previous years, we have a wide range of topics, covering existing therapies and newer approaches. Hot topics such as novel treatments in sepsis are on the agenda, along with the controversial use of ascorbic acid in sepsis. In addition to updates on research, including a new study in the area of sedation, there will be a lively debate on the use of evidence in critical care. The ethics of treating patients in critical care will also be explored, in line with the surrounding legalities. The masterclass will also provide practical experience in the use of citrate renal replacement therapy, a practice increasingly being adopted in critical cares across the country. We look forward to you joining us.
