I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. In this week’s episode, I recently attended the NTI Critical Care Nurses Conference in Houston and interviewed Giang Huynh, RN, BSN, CCRN and Heather Gunter, RN, MSN, MBA, CCRN about their Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) project in their ICUs at UC San Diego Health.<br> Their program encouraged ICU patients and families to write about their stay in a journal, creating an ICU Diary. The CSI program had the goals of decreasing problems related to post intensive care syndrome (PICS), improved unit pride and morale, and improved patient/family satisfaction. This increased referrals to the post-ICU recovery clinic.
