The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and Royal College of Physicians’ Enhanced Care Working Parties have released Enhanced Care: Guidance on Service Development in Acute Care for open consultation.
This document has been produced in response to calls for the development of enhanced care services and guidance on their delivery. It has been developed by a multidisciplinary group, including the British Anaesthetic and Recovery Nurses Association, Intensive Care Society, National Association of Advanced Critical Care Practitioners, NHS England Adult Critical Care Clinical Reference Group, the Royal College of Anaesthetists, the Royal Colleges of Physicians (Edinburgh, Glasgow and London), the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the UK Critical Care Nursing Alliance.
The guidance group also benefited from insights gathered via a focus group meeting, held in February 2019, that included individuals who had successfully developed enhanced care services in their hospitals.
FICM is now seeking wider views on the final draft of the document.
The deadline for responses is 5pm on Friday 13 December 2019.
Your views are welcomed on this Enhanced Care guideline.
