CAUTI Prevention Webconference

Wednesday, March 13, 2013
1:00–2:00 p.m.
This Webconference will refocus NYSPFP’s formal educational programming for catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) and appropriate use of urinary catheters. NYSPFP staff will review the current CAUTI and device utilization data, and prepare hospitals for the next phase of rapid improvement activities. Speakers from featured hospitals will discuss their innovations in CAUTI prevention including limiting urinary catheter insertions in the Emergency Department (ED) and implementing nurse- or physician-driven protocols for timely urinary catheter review and discontinuation.
