This website was first developed in 2011 as a resource for patients, their family & whānau. It subsequently expanded to provide information on the Wellington ICU research programme, and to include educational resources for healthcare professionals. Further additions included online recruitment for medical & nursing staff, and to allow candidates to apply for several of the educational courses we provide.
The entire website was rewritten in 2023 to improve overall accessibility, usability on different devices, and incorporate modern web design standards. Information & resources were separated into two different websites - one for patients/family/whānau and another for healthcare professionals. More information can be found below.
