Information for trial sites

There is evidence to support the rehabilitation of critically ill patients within intensive care unit (ICU), but a paucity of literature to support rehabilitation following discharge from ICU and hospital. Technology-enabled care has been shown to be effective and accessible for delivery of rehabilitation in other illnesses and settings. However, no trials have addressed remote rehabilitation or technology enhanced care for post-hospital discharge rehabilitation in survivors of critical illness.

IRehab provides an opportunity to deliver a definitive trial for the pragmatic evaluation of a remote multicomponent rehabilitation programme targeting survivors of critical illness following discharge from the ICU in whom post-hospital morbidity is substantial. This trial will be the first to systematically test a technology-driven remote approach to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a rehabilitation intervention in patients recovering from critical illness after ICU care.
