Webinar on Getting to Zero: Strategies to Eliminate Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections

Central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) are one of the most lethal types of complications, sickening thousands of hospital patients each year. Despite strong evidence on how to prevent CLABSIs, there is wide variation in infection rates among U.S. hospitals. Join a webinar on Wednesday, April 14, at 2:30 p.m. E.D.T. to explore the reasons for this variation and strategies from hospitals that have been able to "get to zero," with no infections over a sustained period of time. The event will feature Lucian L. Leape, M.D., adjunct professor, Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public Health; Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D., director, Johns Hopkins University Quality and Safety Research Group; and Brian S. Koll, M.D., medical director and chief, infection prevention, Beth Israel Medical Center. Anne-Marie J. Audet, M.D., M.Sc., vice president of The Commonwealth Fund's Program on Quality Improvement and Efficiency, will moderate.
