ICC-CTN Irish Critical Care-Clinical Trials Network
The Research Challenge:
The HRB funded Irish Critical Care-Clinical Trials Network (ICC-CTN) was established in 2015 to support research being conducted by the Irish Critical Care-Clinical Trials Group (ICC-CTG). The ICC-CTN is located within the Clinical Research Centre (UCD-CRC) located at St Vincent’s University Hospital Dublin, Ireland. The CTN aims to support efforts to conduct high quality clinical trials on the Island of Ireland, based on the opportunity, the science, the feasibility and the ability to enhance the standing of our network locally and internationally. Our approach is to energetically grow the network accessibility, size, geographical coverage and scope, to grow the portfolio of CTN supported studies (investigator initiated and industry studies), to develop a reputation for high quality work and establish a sustainable CTN for long term success.
What we are doing?
The mission of the Irish Critical Care – Clinical Trials Network (ICC-CTN) is to undertake high quality Critical Care research in Ireland, including multi-centre clinical trials, basic science research, informatics, service delivery and organisation research with a view to translating this knowledge into improving clinical practice. Below is a list of the studies carried out by the ICC-CTN.
