The Critical Care Strategic Clinical Network (CC SCN) is a community of health care providers, operational leaders and stakeholders from Alberta’s adult, cardiovascular, and pediatric critical care units. We take best practices, ground-breaking evidence, innovative ideas and local successes, and turn them into provincial ways of working.

Our mission is to be a recognized leader in the provision of optimal, sustainable, patient and family centred critical care across the health continuum. 



The delirium project is a quality improvement project with an aim to improve delirium care in all of Alberta's adult and pediatric critical care units by:

  • Developing provincial standards and provincial clinical practice expectations for pain, agitation & delirium care in ICU.
  • Implementing evidence in-formed best practices for assessment, prevention and management of pain, agitation & ICU delirium.
  • Developing a operational and quality dashboard on ICU delirium to facilitate continued quality improvement and learnings.
