How can I start with a diary?

Starting with an ICU-diary can be easy. In Scandinavia the idea was spread in a kind of grasroot movement. In other countries it can be very difficult. Anyway, we want to support your efforts as good as we can. So we offer you a lot of paper sheets, guidelines and other things, you will need for the implementation of the ICU-diary.

Feel free to use these documents, but include the reference, please!

The sheets and examples are scheduled by different countries.
