Adherence to evidence-based central line maintenance practices remains a challenge, particularly in complex patient populations” Sabo et al (2017).

Abstract:

Adherence to evidence-based central line maintenance practices remains a challenge, particularly in complex patient populations. Using an evidence-based observational checklist, areas of nonadherence were identified and a focused educational intervention was developed, resulting in improved adherence across all aspects of the central line maintenance care bundle.
