Despite ongoing research activity in the UK and other countries, there are still many questions about the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of critically ill adults that remain unanswered. Given that resources for research are limited, it is important for research funders to understand how patients, their families and clinicians prioritise these unanswered questions so that future research can be targeted accordingly.
Led by the Intensive Care Foundation, with a wide range of partners and supporters, this PSP also aimed to increase awareness of why research into critical illness is necessary and important.
See Dr Stephen Brett (below) from the Intensive Care Society talking about the PSP.
The Intensive Care PSP Top 10 was published in October 2014.
