Session Overview

The Coronavirus Crisis is far from over and many of our family members, roommates,  and friends are at risk for having to be admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICU).   The variants and vaccine deployment are both wildcard factors.  We will answer: 

  • HOW do we prepare in case of ICU care?
  • WHAT should families and friends anticipate?
  • WHAT do we need to know about ICU care?
  • HOW do we make sure to get the best care?
  • WHAT can families do to help their loved ones?

Dr. Gregory Botz is the clinical leader of our Med Tac Bystander rescue team and a leader in patient safety. He is a Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care UT MD Anderson Cancer Center and an Adjunct Clinical Professor, at Stanford. He provides first hand advice to families that apply the to COVID crisis and whenever loved ones or friends are in the ICU.

Dr. Tim Jessick is a palliative care leader and expert in end of life issues and will provide guidance on the critical issues everyone should understand and prepare for if a loved one or friend may pass away in the hospital or during care.
