Michael Garron Hospital Prolonged-ventilation Weaning Centre (PWC) evaluation
Project ID: 2017-038/2018 0950 020 000
Type of Response: Research project
Knowledge User: Michael Garron Hospital
ICES Scientists: Louise Rose, Erin Graves
Summary: The PWC provides specialized care for patients admitted from ICUs experiencing prolonged ventilator dependence but with anticipated ability to eventually discontinue ventilator support. Data on referral pathways, subsequent care transitions, subsequent use of acute health care and care received in the community are being requested. The data will be used to support the PWC program on an ongoing basis, identify potential areas for improvement following PWC discharge and understand post-discharge health care use and survival trajectory.
