What will you learn from this webinar?

This webinar provides a unique perspective on the journey of an ICU survivor and their family. In this case, ICU survivor Meta van der Woude, as well as her husband, Robert Slappendel, are both Medical Doctors and Anesthesiologists. In that sense, the ICU environment was not unfamiliar to them when Meta had to be admitted. However, the experience ‘from the inside’ was unlike they could have expected.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) and PICS-Family are;
  • Why keeping a diary during ICU admission is important, not only for the patient, but also for the family members;
  • Why it is important for professional caregivers to involve families in care;
  • What the added value of a digital ICU diary is over a paper diary.
