Instructions for the Emotional or Psychological distress tool (patients):

“I (the principal investigator of this study) would like to ask you some questions about your stay in the intensive care, and how you’ve been feeling in yourself. These feelings can be an important part of your recovery. To answer, please select the answer that is closet to how you feel.” (IPAT, © University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust)


It is important for you to know that participation in this study, including answering these questions, is optional and you may leave this study at any time or for any reason. Your choice to leave or stay in the study will not impact your regular care in any way.
