Vision and Mission
ANZICS connects the Intensive Care Community
ANZICS values integrity, respect, inclusiveness, collaboration, excellence and innovation
How ANZICS can helpANZICS support the My Life After ICU website which aims to assist people who have spent time as a patient in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU). For many people, particularly those who have experienced a prolonged ICU stay, a variety of physical and/or psychological health problems may persist for weeks and months after going home.
Information published on the site aims to inform about health challenges faced and provide helpful resources to assist recovery. The content has been developed by intensive care doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, as well as patients who share their personal stories.
ANZICS fully supports strategies to improve the health literacy of their community and to actively involve patients and their care givers to receive timely, targeted and accurate information relating to the practice of Intensive Care medicine.
