Patient- and family-centred care

The experiences and needs of relatives of intensive care unit patients during the transition from the intensive care unit to a general ward: A qualitative study

Background: Relatives of intensive care unit (ICU) patients play an important role as caregivers and can experience emotional distress, also referred to as post-intensive care syndrome-family. A deeper understanding of what relatives go through and what they need may provide input on how to strengthen family-centred care and, in the end, contribute to the reduction of symptoms of post-intensive care syndrome-family. Method: This is a qualitative descriptive study with semistructured face-to-face interviews after ICU transfers.
