Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Critical illness survivors have reported problems and many of them had serious life-threatening illnesses and experience multiple challenges to their recovery. In particular the alterations in physical function or debilitating effect of an illness itself and these changes the overall functional capacity. Due to that, Critical Care Outreach services (CCOS) has been introduced long time ago in the UK, and Australia to provide knowledge and care to survivors to prevent impairment and assisting survivors to smooth rehabilitation.The Community nurses are the most important people that should be providing CCOS however to date, CCOS is not available in Malaysia and the community nurses’ knowledge attitude and skills on CCOS are presumably inadequate. AIM: This project aim to provide the community nurses with substantial knowledge, attitude, and skills on Critical care outreach services ( through developing module) so that they can provide the CCOS to the Critical illness survivors as they go home SERVICE METHODS: Critical care outreach services (CCOS) module will be developed (validated by the content expert) and delivered, through workshop session to 30 community nurses from eight community clinics in Kuantan Pahang. The outcome of the program will be assessed based on nurses’ KAP pre and post program, and Critical illness survivors response following CCOS provided to them using questionnaire and interviews pre, post and periodically (for 12 to 18 month). EXPECTED OUTCOME AND CONCLUSION: The introduction of CCOS to the Community nurses encountering Critical Illness survivors and family members may improve the nurses’ knowledge, attitude, and skills toward achieving the quality of care rendered for survivors and their families and finally improve the survivors long term outcome and recovery. This knowledge transfer program will enhance Community nurses involvement in exploring survivors' long term impact in terms of psychosocial, functional, cognitive and quality of life up to 18 months after ICU admission.
