COMMUNITY EVENTS

As part of the Humanizing Critical Care for Patients and Families project, we will host a number of round-tables with stakeholders.  These include ICU survivors, family members of critical care patients, physicians, nurses, researchers and other health care team members.

The agendas for these meetings will vary based upon the group of people, but may include:

     • Patient experiences with dehumanization.

     • ICU visiting hours

     •Communication between ICU staff and                        patient/family

     •Patient and Family well being

     •Presence and participation and interaction of            family with health care teamCommunication              between ICU staff and patient/family

     •Emotional toll of the ICU on all stakeholders.

     •Effects of post intensive care syndrome,                      including possible prevention and treatment

     •End of life care.

To date, we have had five community meetings.  The meetings included groups of people who were similar. ICU survivors were in another group. Family of ICU survivors were in another group. We hosted two meetings with ICU nurses.

From the data that we have gathered thus far, we will consult with our advisory board to summarize key findings.
