Patients with sepsis, multiple injuries, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) receiving haemodialysis, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and perioperative laryngospasm have high risk of morbidity and mortality. The advancement in the critical care medicine has improved critically ill patients’ survival rate in modern intensive care units. Unfortunately some of these survivors develop post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) which impairs their cognition, psychological health, and physical function, hence reduces quality of life for these patients. Thus preventive strategies are very important to overcome the debilitating outcomes for these survivors.
During delivery of care, the critical care nurses need to adapt to a fast-paced and stressful environment which often predispose to burnout, decrease job satisfaction and even resignation; hence effective strategies are required to improve their work culture. This seminar is designed to provide evidence-based knowledge on some of the conditions requiring critical care; preventive strategies of PICS and effective work culture in the ICU.
At the end of the day, participants will be able to:
- To update evidence-based knowledge on critical conditions.
- To develop effective clinical decision-making in provision of the critical care.
- To promote holistic critical care for speedy recovery.
