Stop CAUTI in the ICU

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are the most common type of healthcare-associated infection. On the CUSP: Stop CAUTI in the ICU is a groundbreaking national initiative that uses the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) and evidence-based interventions to reduce CAUTI.

Learn about the clinical and cultural interventions of this initiative from national faculty experts during the American Hospital Association’s course, CUSP/CAUTI Boot Camp, which will be held prior to the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s 44th Critical Care Congress. Topics include CUSP, learning from defects, frequency of culturing, engaging patients and families, and real success stories from those implementing the work in their intensive care units.

CUSP/CAUTI Boot Camp will be held on January 16, 2015, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Register online by December 31, 2014, to secure your seat.

Complimentary registration is made possible by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
