Although central line-associated bloodstream infections have decreased significantly over the past several years, they remain a serious threat to the well-being of patients who have them, increasing hospital stays and mortality. They consume a tremendous amount of resources and remain a huge financial burden to payers. About 30,000 central line infections still occur each year in the United States. This course has been designed to help you understand best practices in preventing CLABSI, so that you can contribute to improved patient outcomes.

Healthcare-associated infections are among the most common complications during inpatient stays and are a threat to patient safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1 in 25 hospitalized patients acquires an infection while hospitalized. As a result, tens of thousands of lives are lost each year and costs are in the billions of dollars. Fortunately, best practice approaches have significantly reduced many of the most common infections. This course has been designed to help you to work toward a continued decrease in HAIs—and ideally their elimination—by reviewing the: • Causes • Risk factors • Current evidence-based practice strategies
