End of life care in the ICU; Pain, Agitation and Delirium (PAD)


On November 17, 2015 the ICU Collaborative Faculty held a National Call to determine the 2016 National Improvement Initiative.  Two topics were presented:  Dr. Yoanna Skrobik advocated on the side of Pain, Agitation and Delirium.  Dr. Claudio Martin and Cathy Mawdsley advocated for working on End of Life Care.  Callers voted at the end of the call and chose the new topic led by Dr. Skrobik:  Managing “PAD” in your ICU patient: assessment, treatment and prevention.
