Improving Decision Making for Patients with Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation

The investigators at UNC will be responsible for multiple aspects of the proposed research. They will help to refine the decision support tool during the study and train investigators with regard to presentation and explanation of the instrument. They will be responsible for recruitment and enrollment of eligible patients, completion of the intervention, and data collection. Members of the Coordinating Center will develop electronic case report forms and data management systems and assist with data analysis.
