Following intensive care, patients can experience a range of long term physical and psychological effects. ICU follow-up is a continually evolving service; it can be offered as structured outpatient appointments in the year following ICU discharge, and it provides patients with individualized monitoring and supportive aftercare. For intensivists it can be an invaluable tool to facilitate continuity of care; it can help us to assess the quality of care we provide patients during ICU and to observe patient outcomes.
