New Year message from the ESICM President


Dear friends and colleagues,

The past few years have significantly strained the spirit of our Intensive Care community. So it was with even greater joy that we celebrated the Society’s 40th anniversary in person this year, reuniting with so many of you.

Now that the peak of the pandemic seems to be behind us, we will have to care all the more for our ICU teams, our patients, and their families. 

We will do this together, as always. Physicians and nurses, young and seniors, allied healthcare professionals and family members: wherever we are in the world, we will draw strength from the diversity intrinsic to our speciality.

I would like to share a couple of heartfelt thanks in this message:

  • To the members of the Society’s Committees, Sections and Working Groups who, in addition to their demanding professional and clinical responsibilities, help deliver our many activities and in-depth scientific content;
  • To our 10,000 members around the world who entrust the Society to keep improving how we care for our patients;
  • To our industry partners for their generous and regular support of our trainings, events and webinars;
  • To the ESICM Secretariat in Brussels, the glue that supports and holds our community together.

I wish you all happy holidays and all the best for 2023!

Warm wishes

Élie Azoulay
President, ESICM
