An interview with an ICU Liberation Collaborative Leader and Participant.
An interview with an ICU Liberation Collaborative Leader and Participant
Juliana Barr, MD, FCCM, is an associate professor of anesthesiology, perioperative, and pain medicine at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System in Palo Alto, California, USA. She has been helping the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) achieve its mission to improve patient care for more than a decade, most notably leading guideline development, serving on SCCM’s ICU Liberation, THRIVE, and Patient and Family committees, and participating and developing SCCM’s leading quality improvement collaboratives.
Dr. Barr was the lead author on the 2013 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Pain, Agitation, and Delirium in Adult Patients in the Intensive Care Unit. Her efforts on this guideline paved the way for the updated 2018 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Pain, Agitation/Sedation, Delirium, Immobility, and Sleep Disruption in Adult Patients in the ICU (the PADIS guidelines).
She shared her experience implementing the PADIS guidelines and the ICU Liberation bundle (A-F), as well as the value she and her team gained from participating in the ICU Liberation Collaborative.
The ICU Liberation Collaborative was a quality improvement initiative from SCCM that brought together intensive care unit teams to share best practices, as well as pitfalls and challenges to implement the ICU Liberation bundle (A-F) in various projects.
The ICU Liberation Collaborative has ended, but you can learn more about the success of the project published in Critical Care Medicine and in Critical Connections.
SCCM offers many ways to support teams seeking to implement the PADIS guidelines and ICU Liberation bundle (A-F). Learn how you can get started today at sccm.org/ICULiberation.
No matter where you are in the process, SCCM can help you get to the next benchmark of quality improvement.
