Every patient in British Columbia’s 30 intensive care units (ICUs) should have timely, appropriate, effective and safe care. That means reducing the pain and distress experienced by patients, and careful monitoring and control of glycemic levels, to provide them with as much comfort as possible and offer the best chance of recovery. By focusing on both clinical and performance improvement, we are moving towards achieving this goal.
