"So far, no study has identified factors within the ICU work environment that are perceived to impact CRRT practice. The purpose of my study is to identify and describe factors in the ICU work environment that are perceived to influence the performance of ICU nurses and impact CRRT practice, quality of care and patient safety. I am also developing a CRRT-specific instrument to measure the perceived impact of ICU work environment on CRRT practice."
