REVIEW
Krista Wetzig, Marion Mitchell
BACKGROUND: The sudden, devastating, nature of traumatic injuries has a profound effect on patients and their families. When family needs are appropriately met in the intensive care units (ICU), families are empowered to support their injured relative (Blom et al., 2013). While the needs of families of general ICU patients have been examined the needs of trauma patients' families are not known and may be unique. AIM: The authors aimed to answer the question: "What are the needs of families of the adult ICU trauma patient?" METHOD: An integrative review methodology was used...
