In this LUNG-SAFE sub-study, the investigators will evaluate the effect of a brief online educational module on correctly identifying patients (i.e., standardized cases) with ARDS according to the Berlin Definition.
The investigators hypothesize that the training from the educational module will allow more accurate diagnosis of ARDS according to the Berlin Definition by participating data collectors/study coordinators.
Data collectors and study coordinators from ICUs participating in LUNG-SAFE would be randomized (by simple random number generator) to one of the following online educational streams:
- Educational module completion followed by evaluation
- Evaluation followed by educational module completion
Limited demographic data will be collected from the respondents, along with their responses to the 15 multiple choice test questions. Time spent viewing the educational module will also be collected.
