About the Presentation
Many ICUs are developing screening criteria to help identify patients with a high likelihood of unmet palliative care needs. Although it would seem a simple task to develop screening criteria and make them operational, in fact, the process is complex and has many pitfalls. Join IPAL-ICU’s Project Directors, in introducing the latest tool developed by the IPAL-ICU Advisory Board to address this challenge. This tool provides a road map for both ICU’s and palliative care programs, to select screening criteria and develop the process steps necessary to integrate screening criteria into daily workflow.
What You'll Learn
- Describe three categories of screening criteria appropriate to the ICU setting.
- List four process steps in a collaborative ICU-Palliative Care process to develop criteria that meet the need of ICU patients and families.
