Make ICU Ward Rounds Great Again by Julia Coull

Author: Julia Coull
A talk from the 2018 ANZICS Safety and Quality Conference

Ward rounds, it doesn’t matter whether you love them or loathe them, you would find it almost impossible to care for an ICU full of patients without them. For a process that takes up a large portion of our day and involves so many stakeholders, do we think enough about the process of conducting a good ward round? This talk delves into the who, what, when, where, why and how of the humble ward wound and gives some food for thought on how to make them great again.
