The optimal approach for the prevention of ventilator-associated complications (VACs) is currently unknown. A retrospective pre–post intervention analysis was conducted to assess a multifaceted educational intervention targeting the most common causes for VACs and VAC risk factors. Results indicated that the addition of this intervention to existing infection control and treatment protocols did not demonstrate a decrease in VAC occurrence or duration of mechanical ventilation.
