What We Do:

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) can be an intimidating and frightening place for patients and families dealing with the most complex and life threatening medical situations. The Adult Critical Care Medicine Division’s goal is to provide the necessary expert and compassionate clinical care for adult surgical patients who require time in the intensive care unit after surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The Division is uniquely staffed by anesthesiologists, emergency medicine, and internal medicine physicians. The teams in the intensive care setting are focused on providing 24-hour coordinated and communicative care to patients and their families. To ensure cohesive patient management the intensive care units are “intensivist-led” meaning the critical care attending and team manages all aspects of patient care with the input from specialty surgical services. This model helps ensure that patients and families have coordinated communication and care during what is likely a difficult time for all involved.

Dr. Michael Banks: Physician Role Model

The Interprofessional Education and Interprofessional collaborative practice (IPE & IPCP) course is a mandatory course for graduation from the school medicine, nursing and the school of pharmacy at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. The course, which began in 2013, is required for maintenance of accreditation for the medical school, nursing school, school of pharmacy, and recently, the school of public health whose students will be going the program in the spring semester. Dr. Michael Banks has been involved in teaching this course since 2018. He has been a faculty facilitator for 3 of the 4 domains of IPE & IPCP: teams & teamwork, values and ethics, and interprofessional communication. Dr. Banks is also currently collaborating  on development of a tool to assess the attitudes of healthcare providers toward IPE & IPCP.
