Description:

This information booklet is largely aimed at assisting the patient in recovery following a period of critical illness. However, from experience, it is evident that the relatives need to read this first. During the first few days after leaving the ICU, the patient may be unable to concentrate, understand and apply the information to
themselves. By reading this booklet the relatives will hopefully gain an understanding of what the patient is going through and this helps them to be actively involved in the patient's recovery and rehabilitation. The RaCI team are available to support both the patient and the relatives throughout the rehabilitation process - the contact number for the team is on the cover and page 2 of this booklet.
