10 a.m. Pacific  |  11 a.m. Mountain  |  12 noon Central

Join us for part two of the Preventing Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) Learning & Action Network Series.

Preventing central-line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) remains a national patient safety priority given its associated harms of increased hospital length of stay, costs, morbidity, and a 12 percent–25 percent mortality rate. Recent studies have shown that during the COVID-19 pandemic many hospitals experienced a significant increase in their CLABSI rates.

This webinar features proactive strategies and tools for preventing all-cause harm related to CLABSI and sharing of a hospital's success with engaging leaders, providers, and front-line staff in a hospital-wide initiative to drive down device utilization, increase bundle compliance, and improve outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of hard-wiring essential evidence-based infection control practices to prevent CLABSI.
  • Gain insight on how to build resiliency into infection prevention programs to withstand future pandemics.
  • Discuss the impact of COVID-19 and lessons learned to devise strategies to enhance patient safety.
  • Hear about a hospital's challenges during COVID-19 and successes of a hospital-wide initiative with improving outcomes.
