Barriers and Procedures to Eliminate Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections

Bellevue, Wash. -- Wolters Kluwer Health announced today that Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, an infection prevention surveillance, documentation and reporting application, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Teal Jeffers, RN, MSN, in “The Goal: Elimination of CAUTI.”

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is the most frequently occurring type of healthcare-associated infection (HAI) found in the hospital setting. Much attention has been focused on this topic, with the primary goal of preventing this type of infection from occurring. The Joint Commission has recently approved a 2012 safety goal to address CAUTI and the expectation is that hospitals and critical access hospitals will follow evidence-based guidelines in an effort to prevent them from occurring.

Jeffers will provide an in-depth look at the prevalence of CAUTI and discuss the proven essential steps that should be taken to prevent them from occurring. The webinar will address barriers to following procedures, and will also explore solutions to overcoming these obstacles.

The Goal: Elimination of CAUTI
DATE: August 10, 2011
TIME: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
WHERE: http://www.sentri7.com/infection
