Patient and Family Centred Care - World Survey

Posted by Administrator on June 27, 2017


The WFSICCM is currently carrying out a survey that is very relevant to critical care nurses: Patient and Family Centered Care in the ICU: Worldwide Exemplars. The WFCCN in collaboration with WFSICCM invites you to take part in this survey on behalf of your country.

The project is using a survey methodology with use of Research Electronic Data Capture, a secure, web-based application, to collection information worldwide. The information provided will be useful to inform the global critical care community of current initiatives and strategies, and potential barriers to implementing patient centered outcomes research and family centered care/engagement to enhance ICU care delivery.

The survey is very short and should only take 5-10 minutes to complete. Please log on to the URL below. (You may need to copy the URL into your web browser.)

Exciting opportunity - Join the BACCN National Board!

National Board Vacancy

BACCN is an association which thrives on the contribution and efforts of its members - from all members who give support through annual membership subscriptions, to those serving on regional committees and the National Board.

The BACCN National Board consists of 14 members. They meet quarterly to look at all issues relevant to running the BACCN and advancing critical care nursing. All members work together and support one another, but each also has an area of specialism, whether it is managing the Nursing in Critical Care Journal (working with the editors and publishers), helping run annual conference, managing membership or assisting the regions. There is something for everyone - and there are forthcoming vacancies!

So, if you have already had experience on a regional committee, and would like to join a dynamic team driving the critical care nursing agenda forward, and enhance your career prospects too, then this opportunity could be for you!

If you would like further details of what may be involved, please contact

To apply, please email your CV to Nicki Credland (National Secretary) at by 1st August 2017.

Twitter Chat - #baccntherapy

BACCN Twitter Chat - May 

#baccntherapy twitter chat report thanks to @karentheicued

The main points were that using therapies such as pat dogs enhances the psychological support and care we give to patients in ICU. Much of the discussion was around pat dogs or the patients own dog visit them in ICU. I for one consider my dog as a family member and would want him to visit me if I was a long term patient in ICU. Good psychological care whilst the patient is in the unit helps with the patients rehabilitation post ICU.

For myself this twitter chat has been completely invaluable - it's great to share good practice with one another so we can give our patients the highest quality of care. It's also reassuring to know people may have the same pitfalls as others and we can also use the twitter chats as a means of reflection and promoting best practice. I’ve have made some many useful contacts being part of this chats - I enjoy the debates immensely
