Improving the care of acutely ill patients around the world.
The International Forum for Acute Care Trialists (InFACT) was launched in 2008 as a network of investigator-led clinical research groups and academic institutions whose focus is the optimal care of critically ill children and adults. Our members include some two dozen such organizations from around the world, spanning a spectrum of research foci, structural formality, and experience.
From a global perspective, the International Forum for Acute Care Trialists brings together researchers to broaden the scope of acute care research by identifying issues facing acute care centers across the world, and visualize any trends in the source, transmission, presentation, and treatment of disease. InFACT facilitates initiatives that aim to address these concerns, and collectively strive to improve the current standards of care.
We have established special interest working groups that are leading collaborative international initiatives in areas such as antimicrobial resistance, research education, and outcome measures. We have formed partnerships and collaborations with groups such as the International Severe Acute Respiratory and Emerging Infections Consortium (ISARIC) and the WHO.
A core role for InFACT is to develop critical care research capacity in areas where it is under-developed, particularly in low and middle income countries (LMICs). Our vision is to empower intensivists around the world to ask and answer important questions; this, in turn, hinges on building regional capacity and confidence to do so.
