The VIP2* study was an international, multicenter study of the old intensive care unit population.

The VIP2 study built on the successful VIP1 study which was published in 2017.
ICU recruitment took place from the fall of 2017 until fall of 2018. Patient recruitment started between May 2018 and October 2018 and ended on April 30th (May 1st in the UK).

Patients could be included for 6 months (beginning the day of the recruitment of the first patient) or until 20 patients were included for the individual ICU (whichever came first).

A research conference about VIPs was held 5-6th of June 2018 in Bergen, Norway

*The VIP2 study is called POETICS2 in the UK.
