NYSPFP CAUTI Initiative Monthly Webinar

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m
As the first Webconference since the NYSPFP CAUTI Initiative Kick-off in May 2012, this webinar will feature the strategies and best practices that several hospitals (Lutheran Medical Center, Metropolitan Hospital Center, and St. James Mercy Hospital) have used to implement a successful and sustainable CAUTI reduction program within their institutions. A particular focus will include employing TeamSTEPPS concepts in hospital infection prevention programs. During this Webconference, hospitals will also have an opportunity to ask questions and to share and discuss with peers the successes and barriers they have encountered as they begin to plan and roll-out their CAUTI Initiative activities.
