ECCF works to achieve its objectives by:
Identifying, through evidence-based, multidisciplinary research, the non-medical factors that influence the delivery of care to critically ill patients. These may include physical and administrative infrastructures, institutions and economics, public attitudes and awareness.
Developing recommendations in partnership with key stakeholders, which if implemented, would lead to improved outcomes for patients. These include best practice proposals, policy briefs, patient charters, media releases and opinion pieces in the quality press.
Initiating targeted advocacy activities in the EU institutions, in collaboration with partners at both EU and national level to improve the delivery of care to critically ill patients across Europe.
