Controversies in Critical Care


Critical Care Disaster Preparedness Survey

A US team of critical care researchers is investigating the level of distress in our critical care community with a survey. They have been studying other disasters in the US with the purpose of developing a disaster response plan in the future. The PUSLE Query aims to assess key areas of health system stress by requesting bedside clinicians to complete a short questionnaire. Please complete the following contact form to receive a short questionnaire (< 4 mins to complete) via text message or email.


Thank you for your contributions towards national preparedness
