Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CR-BSI) is one of the most costly, frequent, and lethal complications associated with central vascular access devices (CVADs). In a preview of her upcoming presentation at the 2016 INS National Academy, Britt discusses CR-BSI, CLABSI (catheter associated bloodstream infection), and factors to consider in determining the outcome of an infected CVAD.

We’re all familiar with nursing care plans and the importance of this tool to improved patient outcomes. Lisa has developed a care plan for you, the nurse, to plan, implement, and evaluate not only your professional life, but your personal life as well.
