  On Demand  CE  Back to the Basics: Getting There with Evidence on Prevention of CA-UTI’s

Educational Grant From Eloquest
As a profession we are called to higher levels of safety and quality by government and professional organizations, by hospital administration, and most importantly, by patients to implement evidence based nursing care strategies to reduce error. Are you ready to assume ownership of basic nursing care activities with sufficient evidence to impact patient outcomes? This session will provide an in-depth look at evidence based fundamental nursing care practices to reduce or eliminate catheter associated urinary tract infection (CA-UTI). This session will seek to dispel any myths and address the evidence based practice and provide suggestions for successful implementation leading to a change in care.
Program Objectives:
  • Describe the forces within the current healthcare environment that are driving the need to resuscitate the basics with evidence to create a safer patient environment.
  • Identify and detail the evidence based practices around preventing CA-UTI's.
  • Discuss possible barriers to these practice changes and realistic solutions to assist you during the implementation process.
