CAUTI/CLABSI Kick-off Educational Webinar

Thursday, May 24, 2012
1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
NYSPFP will be launching its CAUTI and CLABSI initiatives through an expanded educational Webinar which will cover both initiatives’ goals, objectives, interventions, and roll out plans. NYSPFP project staff and clinical experts will present the evidence behind the program’s goals and approach and review the overall measurement strategy. Hospital infection prevention teams will be given guidance on how to operationalize the program components and bundles of improvement interventions, and there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. Following this kick off Webinar, regional meetings will be held to further support hospital implementation.
