A model of factors that influence meeting the needs of family with a relative in ICU
Kynoch, Kathryn A (2016) A model of factors that influence meeting the needs of family with a relative in ICU. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis developed a model of factors that influence meeting the needs of family with a relative admitted to an adult intensive care unit. The results from the model indicate that several variables are significant in meeting the needs of families in ICU. The factors identified in this study should be considered when planning future intervention studies or implementing interventions into ICU clinical practice. Meeting the needs of families is an integral part of caring for a critically ill patient. ICU staff can minimise this stressful time for relatives by anticipating and addressing family needs.
