Panel discussion to improve care for patients leaving care

Café Scientifique will be held March 12

The public is invited to a March 12 panel discussion to help identify opportunities and challenges for patients transitioning from intensive care to other care settings and back home.

Organized by the Alberta Health Services’ Critical Care Strategic Clinical Network, the event hopes to attract patients who have survived critical illness, family or friends who have had loved ones suffer critical illness, primary care and hospital-based health care professionals, and other interested stakeholders.

The event will provide an opportunity for the public to help identify gaps, challenges and opportunities for improving care transitions that better support all involved – patients, families and health care professionals.

The panel will include a patient who has experienced a critical illness, a family caregiver, a mix of critical care professionals, a primary care and rehabilitative care professional, and a research scientist.

The event will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Toad ‘N’ Turtle, 2004 50th Ave. RSVPs are requested by March 8 to popy.karavidas@ahs.ca.
