Intensive Care: a guide for patients and relatives
The long-term ramifications of critical illness are well documented and recognised among critical care staff but this understanding does not always spread beyond the ICU. We believe that patients should be provided with comprehensive information to help them in their psychological and physical recovery. Having been through the uncertainty and distress that can come with being critically ill, we know how important it is to have this information and the relief that can come from knowing what to expect or that what you're experiencing is normal for someone in your position.
Written by those with first hand experience of bring critically ill the booklets was produced in consultation with a wide range of medical professionals and received Department of Health endorsement as well as a Crystal Mark from the Plain English Campaign.
