Webinar Overview:

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections are one of the most common healthcare-associated infections. For individuals with Dx such as spinal cord injury, spina bifida, MS, or cerebral palsy, CAUTIs can also present unique challenges. In this session, we explore best practices for identifying and preventing CAUTIs and their impact on some vulnerable populations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what is meant by “Best Practice/Evidence-Based Practice”
  • Review the causes and symptoms of CAUTIs
  • Discuss the different indications for indwelling urinary catheters
  • Explore basic methods of CAUTI prevention in patients with neurological Dx such as spinal cord injury, spinal bifida, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy
