As a medical researcher specializing in communication and decision making in the ICU, Plan Well Guide founder Dr. Daren Heyland’s research uncovered that only 1 in 3 ICU patients received the medical treatments they would have chosen for themselves if they had been well enough to make their own decisions.
Most people admitted to the ICU are unable to speak for themselves, so a loved one is appointed as a representative to make decisions on their behalf. This is a critical role, and a role that many are unprepared for.
The Guide to Enacting is for people who have a family member or close friend in the ICU. It will be particularly helpful if you are the representative for this person.
The Guide to Enacting will help you learn how to represent and advocate for your loved one if you are asked to make decisions on their behalf.
$99 $74.25 plus tax
At the end of this Guide, you will be able to download your Dear ICU Team Letter, which will help you and/or the representative engage with the ICU Team to make decisions on behalf of your critically ill loved one.
You can download and print your Dear ICU Team Letter, and share it with the ICU medical team.
