Knowing Your Team – Part 1

Greg Barton,

Welcome back to another year of FICMLearning Podcasts.  

This is the first part of a podcast series we will be running to raise the profile of the critical care multidisciplinary team. We hope that this will highlight the vital contribution that each member of the critical care team makes to the complex management of patients on the intensive care unit and how effective collaboration between team members helps to ensure successful outcomes after critical illness.
