Regarding the suggestion of building a database for critical care medicine in the Kingdom, Dr. Mandorah said that the SCCS has recently established a database for critical care and managed to set criteria for the medical work policy for the patients as well as enacting laws and policies to be adopted for critical care. In addition, the SCCS has developed some clinical guidelines for critical care.

He added that 14 workshops and 12 special training courses in the field of critical care medicine will be held on the sidelines of the conference, noting that the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCHS) has accredited 30 hours of continued education for the program.
The conference is expected to witness participation of a large number of specialists and experts in the field of critical care at the private and public sectors hospitals in Saudi Arabia, as the conference's activities target the physicians and nurses working in the fields of critical care and respiratory care; that is to be added to pharmacists, and specialists of physical therapy.
