Experimental: Nurse Encounter Group
Nurses that are assigned to this group will be asked to take surveys before and immediately following the post-ICU clinic encounter with a patient that they had cared for in the ICU during a follow-up care visit with the former ICU - patient.
Behavioral: Nurse Encounter Group
Nurses in this group will meet with former ICU patients in a post ICU clinic visit. This will be a structured meeting for approximately 15 minutes with the nurse and former patient. The encounter will be observed by a member of the research team. Surveys will be completed before and after the visits. Additionally, nurses will be interviewed 4-7 days after meeting with their former patients.
Nurse Control Group
Nurses assigned to this group will only complete surveys and will not see a former patient in a post-ICU visit.
Other: Nurse control group
This group will complete surveys.
- Change in medical ICU nurse fulfillment toward the ICU following an encounter with a former ICU patient in the post-ICU clinic using an adapted Stanford Professional Fulfillment Index [ Time Frame: Baseline, at the follow-up ICU clinic visit for the encounter group (approximately 2-4 weeks after discharge) ]The survey consists of 6 questions that are measured on a 5 point Likert scale (scored 0 to 4, with 4 representing higher fulfillment). The scores for all 6 fulfillment questions are then averaged for a composite score for fulfillment (also ranging from 0-4). The surveys will be administered at the time of enrollment for both the encounter and control nurse groups. The post-intervention survey will be administered only to the encounter group immediately following the post-ICU clinic encounter.
- Change in medical ICU nurse burnout following an encounter with a former ICU patient in the post-ICU clinic [ Time Frame: Baseline, at the follow-up ICU clinic visit for the encounter group (approximately 2-4 weeks after discharge) ]
The survey includes 2 questions and is adapted from Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and are single-item measures of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization.
The assessment of burnout are measured on a 7 point Likert scale (scored 0 to 6, with 6 representing higher burnout). The surveys will be administered at the time of enrollment for both the encounter and control nurse groups. The post-intervention survey will be administered only to the encounter group immediately following the post-ICU clinic encounter.
