9:00 – 10:00 am A New Frontier in Critical Care: Saving the Injured Brain (Pre-recorded Video) We will unpack the real life implementation of bedside patient management concepts derived from over 40 NEJM, JAMA, and LANCET papers that went into the ABCDEF Bundle that has now been shown to save lives, reduce length of stay, reduce bounce backs, and ICUs globally revamp their service to the world’s sickest patients. OBJECTIVES 1. To teach the robust evidence that delirium is a risk factor of excess mortality, length of stay, cost of care and dementia following critical illness. 2. To discuss acquired dementia following ICU care as a global public health problem that dismantles our patients’ lives as part of PICS (post-intensive care syndrome). 3. To reinforce new data-driven mechanisms embodied in the ABCDEF Bundle by which to improve patient-centered outcomes (survival, length of stay, successful discharge home) as employed within the ICU Liberation Collaborative in over 15,000 patients. 4. To learn strengths and pitfalls of ABCDEF implementation in order to change culture and care successfully so that ICU teams can better serve patients. Speaker: E. Wesley Ely, MD, MPH, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee 10:00 – 11:00 am Will Civil Unrest Increase Health Equity in Psychiatry?
