Course Details


Post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) is defined as new or increased physical, cognitive, or mental health impairment in a patient after hospitalization in a critical care unit. Similarly, post-intensive care syndrome family (PICS-F) refers to new or increased cognitive or mental health impairment in family members after a loved one is hospitalized in a critical care setting. A common-language definition is: New or worse health problems after critical illness that remain after you leave the hospital. These problems can be with your body, thoughts, feelings, or mind, and they may affect you or your family. In this article, we’ll focus on PICS-F.


Key Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify symptoms and risk factors for post-intensive care syndrome-families (PICS-F).
  • Describe techniques for preventing PICS-F.
  • Discuss management of PICS-F.
