Target audience Interested parties
The annual Amsterdam UMC Run (formerly the AMC run) will take place on Sunday June 4, 2023. As part of this running event, the Rehabilitation Department organises the 'Post-ICU Challenge' for the 5th time. A 5 km run, for and with former Intensive Care patients. After an ICU admission, many patients suffer from physical, mental and cognitive complaints, also known as Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS). The Post-ICU Challenge draws attention to PICS and the rehabilitation care of former ICU patients. The proceeds of the Post-ICU Challenge go to research in the context of IC rehabilitation and aftercare. The former ICU patients walk together with a buddy, who can be a family member of a healthcare provider. They cross the start and finish together. The former ICU patient walks as far as they can, while the buddy completes the 5 km. More information here. Register here for sponsoring and donations.
