Central Line Associate Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI)

CLABSIs generate significant morbidity and are monitored in most intensive care units. Significant improvements have been achieved in redcuing infections over the last few years using a number of techniques. In this area you will find both performance data from collaborators, tools for gathering data and care bundles used by contributing units.

December 2016 MiST Collaborators CLABSI data

MiST is working with collaborators to improve monitoring of CLABSIs across all hospital disciplines and to share learning from each of these areas to reduce infections across the board.

A number of oncology clinicians have recently joined the collaborative. Their experience is now informing new work described below.
