Improving Communication in the Trauma ICU

We are grateful to our study participants who are helping us to improve communication between trauma teams and patients’ family members.

We hope this study will:

  • Help doctors, nurses and other trauma team members support patients and families in the ICU
  • Help families work with the trauma team to make decisions that are best for their loved ones

This study will recruit family members of patients at 8 trauma units across the US and is expected to last 3.5 years. We will post study updates on this website and will share results here once they are available.

Study updates

April 2023 – we hope to start recruiting for this study in summer 2023. We’re working with trauma units at each of the 8 sites to ensure that everything is ready.
