Santana, S.L., Furtado, G.H.C., Wey, S.B. and Medeiros, E.A.S. (2008) Impact of an Education Program on the Incidence of Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection in 2 Medical-Surgical Intensive Care Units in Brazil. Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology.

Abstract:

An intervention study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of an education program on the incidence of central line–associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) in 2 intensive care units. There was a nonsignificant reduction in the incidence of CLABSI (odds ratio, 0.46 [95% confidence interval, 0.21;1.02];) despite a significant increase in knowledge of CLABSI prevention by the staff of both intensive care units after the education program.
