Current Research

Consent in Critical Care

This study was completed in June 2017. Researchers looked at patients admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) of 3 Canadian hospitals - CHEO, Alberta Children's and Montreal Children's hospitals - to find the number of children admitted over a one-month period who would be appropriate to approach for assent within the first 24 hours of PICU stay. We will also record: (1) at what point of PICU stay patients >7 years of age become appropriate to approach for assent; (2) the reasons that may limit a patient’s ability to be approached for assent; and (3) the level of agreement between the study team’s, resident/fellow’s, and bedside nurse’s assessment of the patient’s potential to be approached for assent at 24 hours and at
PICU discharge.

The results of this study will be submitted to publication shortly. For more information about this study, please contact Katie O'Hearn.
