Impact of ultrasound guided-central venous access training on CLABSI rates

0

To address this limitation, we designed and conducted a standardized training course and a performance-based competency examination for all residents at a single institution and assessed the impact on the resident CLABSI rate” Lyon et al (2018).

Extract:

“Prior research has examined methods and processes for the teaching of ultrasound-guided central venous access (USGVA). None have assessed the impact of this training on the inserter’s central line-associated blood stream infection (CLABSI) rate. To address this limitation, we designed and conducted a standardized training course and a performance-based competency examination for all residents at a single institution and assessed the impact on the resident CLABSI rate.”
