CRD summary

This review concluded that critical care transition programmes appeared to reduce the risk of intensive care unit readmission, for patients discharged to a general hospital ward. This conclusion reflects the evidence and seems reliable; the limitations of the evidence justify the authors' recommendations for research.
Authors' objectives

To compare the impact of programmes for the transition from critical care, versus standard care, on the risks of readmission to the intensive care unit (ICU) or death in adults.
