Coda Change

Feb 16, 2023

Dr Greg Kelly – a paediatric intensivist at Westmead Children’s Hospital – is today’s guest, on the #Coda22 podcast, during which he discusses a little girl called Abbie, who has lived in ICU for almost two years, and how she represents a very important group of patients – who are a tiny fraction of admissions, but a huge proportion of the workload at Westmead Children’s Hospital. Such patients are complex in such a way that no-one knows exactly what to do with them; nor how to respond to them. He goes on to discuss the problems they see every day at Westmead Children’s Hospital, and what the practitioners can do about them.
