DESCRIPTION:Care practices alone are not enough to sustain change. Being part of a safety culture is critical for success. Be the driver of change and bring the latest evidence to the bedside to ensure positive patient outcomes.
Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI’s) are the only device-related infections which have increased in the last five years. Elimination of symptomatic CAUTIs seems like an unobtainable goal. We need to change that statistic. National quality and safety initiatives, as well as reimbursement strategies are targeted to focus on reducing CAUTIs. Nursing must lead the change and successfully work with unit teams to adopt the latest evidence.
During this webcast we will go beyond the guidelines to explore new practices and technology that, when integrated into current practice, have shown to reduce or eliminate CAUTI’s.
During this webcast the presenter will
- Describe the forces within the current healthcare environment that are targeting zero for device related infections.
- Identify and detail the evidence-based practices around preventing CAUTI’s.
- Discuss possible barriers to these practice changes and realistic solutions to assist you during the implementation process.
