Study shows an improvement in reducing unmet palliative care needs in the ICU with the use of a mobile-based application.

Researchers of a recent study published in JAMA Network Open realized the unmet and racially disparate palliative care needs, common in intensive care unit (ICU) settings. Due to this, they tested the effect of a palliative care intervention (via mobile application) vs. regular care provided in the ICU. The study found that the use of this mobile application reduced unmet palliative care needs, suggesting that a mobile-based intervention is a promising way for ICU clinicians to directly address palliative care needs of their patients within the ICU setting.
