Yes. You could read this report . It is built on the evidence map and synthesized evidence from research published between 1996 and May 2018 on the use of technology to facilitate collaboration among clinicians across time and/or distance. And according to its evaluation results, twenty-one studies evaluated remote ICUs and consistently reported lower, statistically significant inpatient and ICU mortality rates and small, nonsignificant reductions in length of stay. One caveat is that only one study specifically addressed adverse events, reporting lower rates of complications with remote ICUs. Specifically, remote ICUs allow intensivist physicians or teams including nurses and other staff to monitor and direct care for critically ill patients in other locations. And remote ICUs have been used both to provide specialized critical care coverage for nights and weekends, compared with weekdays only and to provide intensivist management to locations without these specialists. Therefore, as hospitals face potential shortages of space and staff to care for a possible surge of critical patients during the COVID-19 crisis, remote ICUs may help efficiently deploy specialized staff.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
