PURPOSE: Current Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) guidelines state that implementation of “Care and Communication Bundle” in Intensive Care Units (ICU) reduces conflicts in the goals of care and improves overall patient and family satisfaction. We identified that there was no such bundle in place in our medical intensive care unit (MICU) leading to patient and family dissatisfaction. We initiated this quality improvement project with the following objectives: 1) To identify the potential barriers for effective communication with the patients and their families 2) To identify the potential barriers for effective communication within the team members in RCU 3) To design an intervention to overcome the identified barriers 4) To evaluate the impact of these interventions
