Course Details

Overview

The past decade has seen a tremendous increase in our understanding of the long-term effects of critical illness on patients and their families. ICU stays can cause physical and cognitive problems for years after discharge. As knowledge of post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) continues to expand, the challenge is to inform health care providers who care for critically ill patients during and after their hospital stay of the potential consequences of ICU admission. This course provides nurses with information on how to improve patient outcomes for patients experiencing PICS. Upon completion, nurses will be able to identify the prevalence and effects of PICS, describe how to avoid or lessen severity of PICS cases, and know how to ensure a more effective transition of the patient from the ICU to the hospital.
