ICUsteps was founded in 2005 by ex-patients, their relatives and ICU staff to support patients and their families through the long road to recovery from critical illness.
It aims are to:
- support patients and relatives affected by critical illness
- promote recognition of the physical and psychological consequences of critical illness through education of the medical profession and the general public, and
- encourage research into treatment and the prevention of these issues.
