This article was first published in the Winter 2022 issue of Critical Connections. When critically ill or injured patients need the services of a critical care team, they are at their most vulnerable. Their life is in the hands of a group of healthcare professionals they have probably never met before. They may not be able to ask questions, express their wishes, or register a complaint about the way they are being treated. Even if they can speak, they may feel voiceless. Here are six simple strategies that trained intensivists and critical care specialists can use to improve the critical care experience of the LGBTQIA+ patients and families they serve. Author: Kimberly D. Acquaviva, PhD, MSW, CSE, FNAP Critical Connections, the critical care industry's only newsmagazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team.
