The CCFAP responds to the unmet needs of families of critically ill patients in hospital ICUs through the provision of educational and family-support resources.
To compare and contrast specific levels of family need across various care models The sites that have implemented the CCFAP in the past six years have demonstrated that the CCFAP can play an important role in impacting the delivery of critical care and outcomes for patients and their families.
In addition, results showed significant decreases in family members' stress/anxiety level when they received CCFAP information or services.
As part of the expansion, The CHEST Foundation is offering a replication toolkit to provide hospitals with critical information and tools for implementing the CCFAP in their own ICUs.
