LearnICU.org Resource: Critical Care Protocol Toolkit

You are encouraged to check out a very useful LearnICU.org resource titled the Critical Care Protocol Toolkit.

Developed by the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmacology Section Education Committee, this resource is meant to assist members of the critical care team with identifying clinical problems and developing, implementing and sustaining success in the provision of critical care services through the use of protocols, which can be defined as “a standard set(s) of tasks that define precisely how classes of patients should be managed or treated.”
