Learning Objective:

To educate healthcare providers on the latest evidence-based practice from the CDC and HICPAC/SHEA/IDSA/APIC recommendations for preventing central line-associated bloodstream infections

Most IV related infections are associated with Central Venous Catheters (CVCs), and approximately 80,000 CLA-BSI occur in U.S. ICUs each year. However, the greatest number of patients with central lines are outside of the ICU environment (for example, in Hematology or Oncology wards), many of which discharge patients with lines in place where there is substantial risk for infection.

Healthcare facilities are now facing increasing pressure from CMS, The Joint Commission, IHI and DHHS to decrease the number of central line associated bloodstream infections. Is your facility prepared?

Featuring renowned expert, Dennis Maki, MD, this program will discuss the latest evidence-based practice for preventing CLA-BSI, including:

  • Pathogenesis/transmission
  • Risk Factors for CLA-BSI
  • Infection prevention techniques before and during insertion
  • Infection prevention strategies for care and maintenance of the catheter
