Getting Past the Policy: Overcoming Barriers to CAUTI Prevention Practices
 

Despite evidence that catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and their sequelae can often be prevented, these remain among the most predominant healthcare-associated infections. These education video modules have been developed for hospital infection prevention champions, including patient safety officers, directors of infection prevention, infectious disease physicians, physician and nursing champions, and infection prevention staff. The modules are adapted from a Webinar recorded June 25, 2009. (Go to modules.)

After viewing these modules, participants should be able to do the following:

  • Identify practical strategies to overcome barriers to a successful CAUTI prevention program.
  • Recall methods of enlisting the support of physician and nursing champions to change the culture around CAUTI prevention practices.
  • Recognize how to encourage and monitor staff compliance with CAUTI prevention practices at the bedside.
