The Intensive Care Society have worked with the intensive care units at Royal United Hospitals Bath and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board to produce the TIM: Team Immediate Meet.
The TIM is a communication tool and psychological first aid to be used after any clinical event that may cause distress. The intention of the tool is to enable staff to briefly check in with each other, have some useful short term self-care advice (Psychological First Aid - an approach advocated by the World Health Organisation), and have the option for supportive follow up after the acute stress response period.
We have made it easy for you to establish our TIM programme in your unit and prepared all of the documents you need to launch which include:
*Documents 2 and 3 should be used in conjunction with each other.
Below you will find training videos, a webinar on hot debriefing and simulations of the TIM in use across various scenarios.
Registration to the TIM programme is free.
If you have any questions about the Tool or how to use it, contact [email protected].
Below are a few simulations showing you how to use the TIM Tool in real life scenarios.
