For anyone who missed our recent “Preventing Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)” webinar, presented by Mary Sears, RN, CWOCN, you can find both the recording and the slides here! Both healthcare professionals and those using catheters will benefit from learning about preventing catheter associated UTIs.

During this webinar, we’ll be discussing the advantages of intermittent catheterization over indwelling catheterization, the specific clinical conditions that are considered acceptable for the placement of an indwelling urinary catheter, and ways to reduce CAUTI risk.

Topics include:

  • Catheter insertion and catheter care
  • Choosing the right catheter: Are you increasing your patient’s risk?
  • CAUTI facts and symptoms
  • The advantages of intermittent characterization over indwelling urinary catheters
  • Best practices

This webinar is presented by Mary W. Sears, RN, CWOCN of Capital Nursing Education.
