Research conducted within the Department of Intensive Care is focused on improving patient safety and how to deliver more efficient and effective treatments to patients in the Intensive Care Unit. These treatments will not only benefit patients but also decrease costs, preserve resources and increase access to limited critical care beds. Their research activities are world recognised, published in leading journals and have received prizes at national and international meetings.
The Intensive Care Unit is currently undertaking 8 Sepsis studies, in collaboration with other hospitals. Six observational studies are underway, 1 on nutrition, 2 on patient outcomes, 5 outcome studies and 3 statistical method reviews.
Studies on the critically ill represent co-operative undertakings between all the nursing and medical staff in the intensive care unit. Many thanks to research coordinator, Patricia Williams and research project officer, Catherine Kurenda.
