Healing alone: the story of a first-year doctor and a widower in hospital

23 January, 2019|

We usually start some of our trainings in #humantools remembering those moments (remote for some) in which we make the decision to dedicate our professional future to health care. We took a decision, ruling out others, probably moved by what, a priori, we consider as characteristics of our professions: principle of service, respect for dignity and compassion among others. Wrapped [...]

New Guidelines for Family-Centered Care in the Neonatal, Pediatric, and Adult ICU. “Open the door, baby”

17 January, 2017|

A few days ago we saw in the networks a post of  Arturo Arias in which he said textually "Little by Little we are opening more the doors of my H-ICU... and I wonder: How we were able of having them closed for long time...?". Probably, and we should study it soon, many ICU have started to give steps toward a greater opening. The present benefits in the scientific literatura in the [...]

ORCHESTRA: more about families and visiting policies

10 January, 2017|

Expanding visiting time and encouraging family participation in the care are supported by many critical care societies and  Health organisations, although the reality continues being restricted. It is thought that families can affect flows of work and thereby, alter the results and performance. In the ORCHESTRA study carried out in Brazil (a multicenter retrospective cohort study of critical care organization and outcomes during 2013), the association between [...]

Collective constructions. By Mariana Torre

23 November, 2016|

The practice of nursing in Latin America, especially in the field of intensive care, has special features: our geographical position, socio-political and cultural reality and above all, our historical past and quality of "emerging countries" (a great euphemism)...

#UCIamable (friendly ICU) Campaing, with José Manuel Velasco

3 March, 2015|

Some days one rises more "friendly" than others.These days, nothing or no one should break this state of "kindness". However, places, people, events and our own lack of interest, determine staying kind.Today we have raised "friendly" and I wouldn't miss the opportunity to invite you - and that we consider - some thoughts that prevent that this feeling is something [...]

The B Team, by José Manuel Velasco

27 September, 2014|

Talk about "teamwork" is easy in those places where this is a guideline, but tremendously complicated with whom has no clear the meaning. Recently I read a post of the great Miguel Ángel Máñez (@manyez) where he said: "teamwork is one of the current mantra in health organizations. But actually "teams" that exist are really teams ? Or rather are pseudoteams based [...]
