The Center for Humanizing Critical Care brings researchers and clinicians together to focus on helping patients and family members make it through life-threatening illnesses and injuries with their humanity intact. Our goal is to transform the way we care for patients and families in intensive care units and during their transition back to normal life.
Why the Center was Created
We recognize how stressful a life-threatening illness can be to both patients and family members, and that people process information and make decisions in different ways. At the Center, we are performing research and developing tools that can be customized to the needs of individual patients and families. We engage in multidisciplinary research to better understand and improve the outcomes that matter most to patients and their families.
