We continue to have our special partnership with the British Association of Critical Care Nurses (BACCN) and ran a joint simulation symposium at the September 2020 annual conference. The BACCN supports its critical care members, by responding to political and professional change; and by producing and publishing position statements, and hosting webinars and an annual conference to disseminate information and educational initiatives.
