Collaborative Assessment of ICU Recovery Needs
The primary purpose of this study is to better understand the impact of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) THRIVE Collaboratives on patients, their families and clinicians. The investigators have formed an international and interprofessional evaluative team with experts in the field in an effort to explore interactions between survivors and THRIVE. This approach is reflective of the international ethos of SCCM and its collaboratives, with the potential to improve the generalizability of this survivorship research to different health systems.

The aims of this qualitative study are:
1. To identify elements that helped survivors in their recovery, as well as potential obstacles
2. To capture elements of survivorshop that are generalizable, regardless of participation in the THRIVE collaboratives
3. To gain knowledge to be incorporated back into the collaboratives
Patients, family members, and clinicians will be interviewed and their responses analyzed for themes of ICU recovery including elements that patients and families find helpful to recovery, barriers and facilitators to different models of post-ICU support, including peer support and post-ICU clinics, and drivers of improvement in post-ICU care. Patients, carers, and clinicians with a wide variety of survivorship experiences are encouraged to participate, including those who have participated in a THRIVE collaborative support site (peer support or clinic).
