You are invited to participate in an international survey on the prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) in intensive care units.
This survey was created by a team from the Healthcare Associated Infections Unit, Scientific Institute of Public Health, Belgium, in collaboration with the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training, part of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. The Society of Critical Care Medicine joins the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine, the International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine, and the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine in distributing this survey.
This survey seeks to document knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding CLABSI prevention in intensive care units worldwide. The team conducting this survey recently carried out a similar survey on prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia, which gathered replies from 61 countries.
The survey is aimed at medical doctors and nurses working in intensive care units worldwide. It is provided in 10 languages for ease of use by respondents. The survey is short and can be completed in 10 minutes.
