Register now for the latest webcast from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM’s) ICU Liberation series, Family Engagement – AACN Clinical Scene Investigator Academy Project , held in collaboration with the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN).

The AACN Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) Academy team at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is composed of four nurses from the cardiac intensive care unit (CICU). This team administered an educational program on the ABCDEF bundle to an audience of intensive care unit nurses at MGH. The final bundle element, family engagement and empowerment, was added to represent the value of family involvement in the overall patient plan.

In this webcast, Maurene A. Harvey, RN, MPH, MCCM, critical care educator and consultant, Erica Edwards, RN, MSN, CCRN-CMC, CHFN, CICU attending nurse and AACN CSI Academy team member at MGH, and Alicia Sheehan, RN, BSN, CICU staff nurse and AACN CSI Academy team member at MGH, will provide the evidence for this addition, as well as illustrate how family engagement is implemented in the CICU.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify factors described in the literature about the importance of family engagement
