An educational programme directed toward respiratory care practitioners and intensive care unit (ICU) nurses was considered. The programme consisted of a 10 page self study module on risk factors and practice modifications involved in ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP, inservices at staff meetings, and formal didactic lectures. Each participant was required to take a pre-intervention test before the study module and an identical post-intervention test following completion of the study module. Fact sheets and posters reinforcing the information in the study module were also posted throughout the ICUs and the Department of Respiratory Care Services.
