OBJECTIVE: Ventilator associated pneumonia is the most frequent health-care-associated infection in Intensive Care Units, causing increased antibiotic consumption and resistance, length of stay, plus multiple health and economic costs. The aim of the study was to assess whether a customised guideline implementation would improve ventilator-associated pneumonia incidence and associated intensive care outcomes. DESIGN: This was a quasi-experimental, before-after study consisting of pre-intervention, intervention and post-intervention periods...

BACKGROUND: It is widely acknowledged a critical illness is a stressful life event for not only the patient but also their family members; when an illness becomes prolonged, the impact is profound. It is suggested that as medical technologies advance, the number of days patients stay in an intensive care unit will increase. Therefore, it is important nurses understand how families experience a prolonged critical illness of their family member in an intensive care unit. OBJECTIVE: To explore the trajectory of a prolonged critical illness in the intensive care unit from the experiences of family...

Withdrawal assessment in critically ill children is complicated by the reliance on non-specific behaviours and compounded when the child's typical behaviours are unknown. The existing approach to withdrawal assessment assumes that nurses elicit the parents' view of the child's behaviours. OBJECTIVE AND RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: This qualitative study explored parents' perspectives of their child's withdrawal and preferences for involvement and participation in withdrawal assessment. Parents of eleven children were interviewed after their child had completed sedation weaning during recovery from critical illness...

BACKGROUND: It is a common practice that new graduate Registered Nurses are hired into adult intensive care units as initial entry into practise. There exists a practice readiness gap between nursing curricula and actual clinical practise expectations at adult intensive care settings; this has led to negative consequences and subsequent nurse turnover, a concern nationwide. Nonetheless, some new graduate nurses survived their initial transition and continue to practise in adult settings...
