APIC Co-Launches Website to Help Eliminate CLABSIs

The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) has announced it has joined with the Association for Vascular Access and the Infusion Nurses Society to launch a new website aimed at helping to eliminate central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs).


The website — http://CLABSI.APIC.org — is a part of APIC's "I Believe in Zero CLABSIs" campaign, in which infection preventionists are urged to lead efforts to eliminate these infections, which kill 30,000 people in the United States every year, according to an APIC news release.


The site is intended to serve as a virtual toolkit for health professionals, offering educational materials, webinars, advice from leading experts, guidance documents from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other authorities, as well as APIC's Guide to the Elimination of Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infections, which translates evidence-based findings into practical, implementable solutions.


Visit the new CLABSIs website at http://CLABSI.APIC.org.
