To the Editor: Dr Scales and colleagues1 reported that quality improvement interventions increased adoption of some (but not all) care processes in community intensive care units (ICUs) in Ontario. They noted that the ICU interprofessional team approach to patient care is well accepted, but we question whether the educational needs and methods of delivering the intervention were the same for physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and others.
