Event description

Description

On 19th October, we are hosting a collaborative meeting between King’s Critical Care and General Practitioners. We hope that as well as providing invaluable information to GPs who attend; the meeting will also allow GPs to feedback to the intensive care team. We hope that this will improve the care of a patient across their whole journey from resuscitation to rehabilitation.

 Reasons to attend:

  •  Approximately 300,000 people per annum are admitted to almost 300 adult intensive care units in the UK, a number that is predicted to rise by 5% per year. General Practitioners will be increasingly faced with patients who have had complex, prolonged and multiple admissions to critical care. The consequences, physical, cognitive and psychological, of being critically ill will increasingly become relevant in the primary care consultation and will impact on decision-making.

  • General Practitioners will understand more than most the profound effects that critical illness can have on family and friends of the patient. It is also evident that critical care staff has poor knowledge and understanding of the pressures and realities of primary healthcare and the severe strain on community resources. This meeting provides an opportunity for GPs to feed this back directly to the critical care team.

  • Practical questions will be addressed around the consequences and implications of medicines started in critical care and procedures such as percutaneous tracheostomies. Resources that are available to General Practitioners will also be explored.
