Title Intensive Care Week (2022): Stories from our Professional Advisory Groups Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet Intensive Care Society Media type Web Duration/Length/Size 25 minutes Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 10/06/22 Description Caring for the sickest patients in our hospitals takes a large and diverse team of multi-professionals. Our members are doctors, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, occupational therapists, and all other allied healthcare professionals who make up the ICU team.
There are many great reasons to start a career in intensive care, and plenty of things to love the job. But why take it from us? Hear from some of our members about what an average day looks like, why love working in ICU, and why they think you will too.
A career as an intensive care nurse can start in many ways and it can take you anywhere. From outreach, to research, to care by the bedside, if there’s one thing our Nurses Professional Advisory Group agree on it’s that it's all about the patients.
To celebrate Intensive Care Week 2022 four members of our Nurses Professional Advisory Group, Michaela Jones, Liz Staveacre, Pam Ramsay and Graham Brant, sat down to chat about how they came to be nurses in intensive care, and the contributions they feel they can make in their differing and varied careers.
It’s a great listen, full of insight into their profession, its future, and all the places it can take you. You can check it out at the button below, or wherever you get your podcasts by searching for ICS Radio in your podcast app.
