Tiers of interventions to prevent CLABSI.
This material was expanded, enhanced, and adapted from materials developed for catheter-associated urinary tract infection prevention by faculty and staff at the Department of Veterans Affairs and the University of Michigan, with funding support from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Further adaptation was done with funding support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For detailed information on tier 1 and tier 2 interventions, resources, and references, see the Supplement.
