Resource for Non-ICU Clinicians to Support Staffing
“Back to Basics: Caring for the Critically Ill” is another great resource available to clinicians, at no charge, providing vital information for mechanical ventilation and strategies for the management of ARDS. This is great for cross-training or refreshing critical care skills to support staffing in ICU. I continue to utilize these resources as a refresher and learning opportunity myself and find them extremely beneficial.
Let your tiered staffing committee members know as this is another great resource to ease staff fears in understanding the “why” to what we are doing.
