2019 Marian Barrett Lecture

Over the past several decades, advances in paediatric critical care have saved many lives. As such, contemporary care has broadened its focus to include minimising post paediatric intensive care unit morbidity. Post-Intensive Care Syndrome, also known as PICS, is a group of cognitive, physical and mental health impairments that commonly occur in patients after intensive care unit discharge. In children, organ system maturation, psychosocial development and the interdependence of family also impact outcomes post critical illness. This session will review the recently articulated PICS-p framework that was designed to help illuminate the phenomena of surviving childhood critical illness and guide outcomes measurement in the field. Mapping out potential recoveries after pediatric critical illness is an important first step in designing interventional research to help improve patient outcomes.
