PICU SURVEYS and STUDIES
In line with WFPICCS’ mission and objectives, we are pleased to promote approved PICU surveys and studies on our website, providing a place for PICU health professionals to learn about new initiatives with an opportunity to participate.
All surveys are approved by the WFPICCS Board before they are promoted. If you have a survey and study which you would like to have promoted on WFPICCS’ website please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Your workplace firewalls may not allow you to access surveys which are using survey monkey. Your network administrator would need to add all survey monkey domains and sub-domains for the site to work properly. If this is not possible, please take the survey from your home computer.

2. PICU Rehabilitation Practices and Outcomes Survey
As you know, morbidity in PICU survivors is a critically important topic for patients and families. Please take a few minutes of your day to contribute to an investigator-incentivized e-survey (research funded by PCORI) designed to learn about current opinions and approaches to rehabilitation and outcomes assessment in the PICU. Thank you.

3. PINS 2018 – a prospective, multi-center cohort study of nutritional practices and outcomes in pediatric intensive care units around the world
Invitation to participate in the upcoming 3rd international study of nutritional practices in Pediatric Intensive Care Units (PICUs). The 3rd international study will aim to verify the important findings from the two prior studies with updated methods and a more focused approach. Participation in the study will provide many opportunities for participating PICUs: a) a detailed benchmarking site report comparing nutrition practices with other PICUs across the world; b) examine focused research questions and exploration of subgroup populations; c) develop a picu-specific Nutritional risk score that predicts nutritional decline as well as hospital and PICU length of stay. Finally, selected sites will have the opportunity to participate in a novel ‘embedded’ pragmatic trial of protein supplementation.

The start date for this third international study is January 10, 2018.
