Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection Prevention in Action: Strategies from the Field | Oct. 27, 2022
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) show a significantly higher incidence of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) in 2021 compared to 2019. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, prevention of CAUTIs remains a patient safety priority in hospitals to reduce patient harm and costs and improve outcomes.
This presentation will feature real world examples of effective CAUTI prevention strategies shared by Alaska Native Medical Center and Campbell County Health infection prevention leaders. Our speakers will share their experiences developing staff education, optimizing surveillance, engaging physician champions and much more!
