PICU

A message from: PICU Liberation

Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) patients frequently experience multiorgan failure and require advanced life support measures. As a result, many patients suffer profound weakness, pain and delirium, which can have serious short and long term effects on a child’s quality of life and return to function.

PICU Liberation is  new, innovative way of minimising the harmful effects often associated with critical illness and PICU treatments. It is a group of strategies aimed at improving important patient and family outcomes around survival and quality of life. Strategies include early mobilisation and rehabilitation, avoiding deep sedation and coma, improving sleep and minimising delirium, and enhancing parent partnerships through neurodevelopmentally appropriate cares.

Our mission is to have an animated PICU filled with children who are awake, engaged, playing and mobile, with family members empowered as partners with the PICU team at the bedside.

Support Aidan Magee, Christian Stocker, Courtney Harris, Kacee Knoll, Kevin Plumpton and Tassie Smith in their bid to run the 42K as our nominated team. Your generous donation will support the PICU team in implementing Liberation through the purchasing of specialised equipment and staff roles. Our aim is to raise $100,000 and we need your help! Imagine the reach our campaign could have if all 300 plus PICU Staff donate just $10 and share with 10 friends and family, in turn the family/friends on share and so on. Get sharing and start donating - every little bit helps!

Thank you for your support!
