Dr Rachael Grimaldi, NHS Anaesthetist has founded CARDMEDIC in the last 2 weeks

CARDMEDIC was inspired by a news article on a patient surviving COVID-19 after an admission to a UK Intensive Care Unit, where he described feeling terrified of not being able to understand what his healthcare providers were saying, due to the limitations of communicating through Personal Protective Equipment (face masks, visors, hoods etc).

CARDMEDIC is a free collection of communication flashcards designed to break through the PPE barrier, improving transfer of vital information from frontline healthcare professionals to unwell and critically ill patients.

CARDMEDIC is also a practical and convenient upskilling training tool, for healthcare professionals re-deployed to work outside their usual realm of clinical practice and for healthcare staff and volunteers returning to work in the pandemic.

They are simple and succinct, using basic language to share information and describe the plan of action. Set out in alphabetical order, it should be easy to find what you’re looking for.

You may wish to use the “HELLO MY NAME IS…” card at the start of every patient interaction to introduce yourself and set the scene for using the flashcards.

The flashcards can be used in electronic format on either the patient’s or hospital’s phone / tablet / smart device, or printed, laminated, annotated and re-used – write on, wipe off.

Widely accessible for all, the cards are available in 10 different languages and there is a “read aloud” option for patients either too unwell or unable to read, or those partially sighted or blind.

They are continually expanding their database, so please get in touch with suggestions or comments, as well as ideas for further flashcards.

A very big thank you to all those involved so far for their invaluable insights and contributions so far. This is truly a multi-disciplinary team effort and further feedback and ways in which can be improved are welcomed.
