CAUTI Prevention Webconference

Wednesday, May 22, 2013
1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m.
This Webconference will continue to focus on the rapid improvement plan for reducing catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) that NYSPFP launched in April 2013. Hospitals that have implemented or begun to implement the pilot test of change for optimizing catheter utilization in the emergency department (ED) will report on their progress and experience. Additionally, NYSPFP will unveil the next phase of the rapid improvement plan focused on implementing “hard and soft stops” for catheter discontinuation and focusing on triggering discontinuation at certain high risk transitions, such as transfers out of the operating room (OR) or critical care.


• NYSPFP Staff
• Additional Hospital Speakers TBD
