Project Survey
Dear ICU Nurse Colleague,
We have received funding from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses for the
purpose of conducting a performance improvement project (PIP). Our aim is to
determine the current knowledge and use of the ABCDEF Bundle so that we can identify
opportunities for training. We are asking you to complete a survey at the beginning and
end of this PIP because you are a critical care or RACU nurse who routinely cares for
patients who are mechanically ventilated.
The survey contains 5 demographic items, 21 multiple choice items, and 3 open ended
questions that you may respond to. It may take up to 15 minutes to complete. Once the
last question is completed, you will not be able to re-enter. You will receive a message
when you are reaching the end of the survey.
The survey is completely anonymous. Your survey responses will not be linked to your
name, user name, or email address.
Please answer all the questions. Your answers will not be reported to your nursing
directors and will not affect your employment. All results will be reported both in the
aggregate (for study purposes) and by unit (to the CNS on the unit for educational
