International Meeting ''Caring for patients in ICU: the times they are changing''


International Meeting

Sala Italia - Largo Francesco Vito, 1 00168 Rome 19 dicembre 2012

... These suggestions were made to one of us by a family member, the son of a patient who died of disseminated lung cancer. He asked that we tell our residents this: "Please don't rush. Make me feel like I am the most important person in the world to you right now. Listen twice as much as you talk. Don't just use your mouth, show me how you feel with your eyes."
