Opened in late 2012, The ICU Recovery Center in an innovative national resource at Vanderbilt that is dedicated to addressing the multifaceted recovery needs of individuals who have survived a critical illness. This clinic is a natural extension of the ground breaking research done by investigators at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and elsewhere around the world that has highlighted the existence of significant neuropsychological, mental health, physical and functional challenges among survivors of critical illness in the months and years after discharge. Our clinic provides a wide array of interdisciplinary services each Friday in the Vanderbilt Outpatient Pulmonary Medicine Clinic with the goal of coordinating post-ICU care, easing the transition from intensive care to home, and providing mental health treatment and cognitive rehabiliation. Directed by Carla Sevin, M.D., our team is comprised of an intensive care nurse practitioner, a neuropsychologist, an intensive care pharmacist, and a case manager.
An ICU Support Group meets every Tuesday at 1 pm CST at West End Community Church, 235 White Bridge Pike, Nashville, TN 37209. This group is facilitated by Jim Jackson, PsyD. The purpose of this group is to provide support for patients and/or family members of patients that have suffered or are dealing with current critical illness.
