Kyle B. Enfield, MD, and Kimberley J. Haines, PhD, BHSc, discuss implementing post-ICU clinics and peer support groups following critical illness to help reduce the burden of post-intensive care syndrome.
Dr. Haines participated in the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) THRIVE Collaborative which is an ongoing initiative to provide resources and education for ICU patient survivors and families following their ICU stay.
Drs. Enfield and Haines clarify qualitative methods used in the study published in the September 2019 issue of Critical Care Medicine (Haines K, et al. Crit Care Med. 2019;47:1194-1200), and navigate ways to overcome some of the barriers in implementing post-ICU clinics.
Dr. Haines is a senior ICU physiotherapist and physiotherapy researcher lead at Western Health in Melbourne, Australia.
Dr. Haines discloses that her research team was funded by SCCM and that she was the recipient of an SCCM THRIVE Research Grant.
