The primary focus of critical care is doing everything necessary to save lives. With so many things to manage, it comes as no surprise that the complex, multi-layered issues faced by critical illness survivors cannot be managed by intensive care specialists alone. Critical Care Psychology and Rehabilitation provides insight into holistic care of survivors. Written by leading experts, the book builds upon current literature and illustrates the benefits of integrating psychological and rehabilitation techniques throughout the care continuum. Chapters include summaries of treatment techniques, developments in intensive care settings, support and training for staff, and opportunities for further research. Although all chapters are relevant to contemporary psychology practice, the book is written in a style that is accessible to a wide audience of physicians, nurses, and other health professionals. Critical Care Psychology and Rehabilitation offers tools to improve the quality of intensive and post intensive care, with positive outcomes for patients, families, and caregivers.
