This article was first published in the Winter 2021 issue of Critical Connections.
The prevention, recognition, and management of post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) has come to the forefront in critical care and with it comes the emergence of the PICS clinic. Also known as post-ICU, ICU follow-up, or ICU recovery clinics, PICS clinics are commonly multidisciplinary team clinics developed to address a broad spectrum of unmet needs after critical illness. These clinics have been associated with reduced hospital readmission and reduced time to readmission. They help clinicians gain a better understanding of the patient experience to improve their ICU care. Experts from three organizations shared their experiences and discuss what prompted them to start a clinic and the challenges and successes they have had along their journey.

Critical Connections, the critical care industry's only newsmagazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team.
