About the CCCRCG
The CCCRCG is a sub-group of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group (CCCTG) and was established in June 2004. Membership is comprised of Research Coordinators from across Canada, who work primarily in Critical Care Research. CCCRCG members consist of Research Coordinators who work with adult and pediatric populations.
The goals of the CCCRCG are to:
1- Create networking opportunities and foster local and national collaboration between Critical Care Research Coordinators
2- Develop opportunities for professional growth and development and create a venue for continuing education to meet the needs of Critical Care Research Coordinators in Canada
3- Provide peer support to Critical Care Research Coordinators
4- Promote the vital role of the Critical Care Research Coordinator in Clinical Trials
5- Support and facilitate the aims of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group (CCCTG)
6- Lead research initiatives of interest to the CCCRCG membership and of relevance to the critical care population

Is membership in the CCCRCG for me?
Through the support of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group, we offer annual workshops geared towards providing professional development and networking opportunities for Research Coordinators working in this highly specialized area. In addition, members are provided with support for their own research initiatives and are welcome to attend any of the meetings of the CCCTG.

This one day workshop takes place on an annual basis and provides critical care Research Coordinators with the opportunity to participate in education sessions specific to the work that we do. The workshop is scheduled to occur in conjunction with the CCCTG Fall Meeting. Some of the evaluation comments received at previous workshops:
“Well put together, enjoyed the day! Very informative. Lots to bring back to my site and incorporate”
“Very great day full of knowledge”
“The breaks facilitated communication and idea-sharing between other RCs across Canada”
The next Workshop will take place in Halifax NS on June 12, 2016 (Lord Nelson Hotel)
