CLABSI Toolkit – Preventing Central-Line Associated Bloodstream Infections: Useful Tools, An International Perspective
The Joint Commission, Joint Commission Resources (JCR), and Joint Commission International (JCI) have developed a toolkit to supplement the monograph entitled Preventing Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections – A Global Challenge, A Global Perspective aimed at reducing CLABSIs in the domestic and international arenas. The overarching goal of the monograph and accompanying toolkit is to provide the most current information and guidance on practices and technology, as well as the most appropriate tools, resources, and education, to assist health care organizations in reducing the current burden associated with CLABSIs. The monograph and toolkit cover central lines only—not peripheral lines or arterial lines. The intended audience consists of health care personnel who insert and care for intravascular catheters and who are responsible for the surveillance, prevention, and control of infections in all health care settings.
