Surveys

The FICM often receives requests to distribute Surveys to our Fellows and Members. The decision was taken to not forward on non-FICM surveys, so as not to overload our Fellows and Members with emails.

We are aware that these surveys can however be of interest so, without any endorsement from the FICM, this page will list surveys which the FICM has been asked to distribute, so you may complete them if you wish.

If you wish to add a survey to this page, please contact us at contact@ficm.ac.uk

 

Current Surveys​:

Paediatric Traumatic Brain Injuries in Low-Middle Income Countries

With the recent publication of the "Management of Pediatric Severe Traumatic Brain Injury: 2019 Consensus and Guidelines-Based Algorithm for First and Second Tier Therapies", a group of paediatric intensivists with a global health interest plan to explore the current practice of TBI management in resource-limited settings and the ability to implement them. We were given your details as a possible contact who might work in this setting. 

They have produced a survey, link below, and would be very grateful if any healthcare professionals that manage or nurse children with severe traumatic brain injury in low-middle income countries could complete it. In addition, if you have contacts in other hospitals or countries, please be kind enough to forward on the link.

Delphi survey to support the development of a Core Indicator Set for reporting burn wound infections in research

The IConB (Infection Consensus Burns) study team invites you to complete a Delphi survey to support the development of a Core Indicator Set for reporting burn wound infections in research. The protocol for this study has been published in the BMJOpen https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/9/5/e026056

This survey has been developed by a multidisciplinary team from several burns centres in the UK, following a systematic review that has identified considerable heterogeneity in how burn wound infections are diagnosed and reported in trials of interventions for patients with burns.

They need your help to select the most important indicators to be reported in research, to support evidence synthesis and identify the most effective treatments for patients with burn injuries.

You are eligible to take part if you are a doctor, nurse or therapist working with patients with burns. This includes intensive care specialists, GPs and ED specialists in the UK. We also welcome input from Clinical Microbiologists working within burns teams.

The survey comprises 28 items and takes around 10 minutes to complete. Further information and the survey can be found here: https://is.gd/icon_b

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Anna Davies at the University of Bristol anna.davies@bristol.ac.uk


Post resuscitation care management in UK ICUs

Post resuscitation care forms part of the chain in the management of cardiac arrest. The Resuscitation Council (UK) last published guidelines on post resuscitation care in 2015. Although these are very useful for managing patients in the post resuscitation phase.

This survey is investigating the extent to which ICUs nationwide are applying these guidelines during management of patients post-ROSC (return of spontaneous circulation).
