Women in Intensive Care

Women in Intensive Care

Women in Intensive Care study: a preliminary assessment of international data on female representation in the ICU physician workforce, leadership and academic positions. Despite limited information globally, available data suggest that females are under-represented in training programmes, specialist positions, academic faculty and leadership roles in intensive care. There are significant gaps in data on female participation in the critical care workforce. Further data from intensive care organisations worldwide are required to understand the demographics, challenges and barriers to their professional progress. Of the 84 societies, 23 had a registered membership of greater than 500 members. To obtain a global perspective, societies registered with the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine were surveyed.
