Quality of care for critically ill patients in the Lao PDR

Rebecca Inglis is a British intensive care doctor and Fellow of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine. Her area of research is the delivery of Critical Care in low resource settings, with a particular emphasis on effective implementation. She uses ethnographic methods to explore the quality of care and its determinants. She set up the Essential Critical Care Course in collaboration with the Lao Critical Care Society. The five-day training covers core elements of care for critically ill adults and had now been rolled out across Laos.

During the pandemic Rebecca has been working as a consultant for the World Health Organization, supporting the COVID response in Lao PDR. She is also part of the UK Emergency Medical Team and the Outbreak Response Specialist Team and has recently returned from a deployment to Armenia to support the care of critically ill COVID patients.

Rebecca is a founding member of CRIT CARE ASIA (the Collaboration for Research, Implementation and Training in intensive CARE in ASIA) which has established a regional network linking multiple intensive care units across South and Southeast Asia.
