Summary of "What's behind the white coat: Potential mechanisms of physician-attributable variation in critical care."

Critical care intensity is known to vary across regions and centers, yet the mechanisms remain unidentified. Physician behaviors have been implicated in the variability of intensive care near the end of life, but physician characteristics that may underlie this association have not been determined.
