Linking Blood Stream Infection Rates to Intensive Care
The goal of this study was to implement a comprehensive safety program including an evidence based intervention to reduce central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSIs) while examining the context of nursing care delivery on patient outcomes. This interdisciplinary research team used the expertise of nurses to develop and deliver a quality improvement initiative that reflects the positive clinical contributions of nurses in the critical care setting. This study is likely to inform other nurse-led medical error reduction interventions, contribute to the quality improvement literature and to the science of rigorously evaluated evidence based interdisciplinary nursing practice.
The project findings are presented in a research brief on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's website.
