December 7, 2011    |   By: Calevir

The Kansas Healthcare Collaborative, along with the Missouri Center for Patient Safety, co-hosted the Cohort 5 & 6 CUSP/Stop CLABSI Mid-Course meetings in Topeka, Kansas this week!   Over 30 teams from Kansas and Missouri were in attendance and participated in group work on overcoming project barriers and walked through the process of learning from a defect.

Several Missouri teams were recognized for completing 6 or more consecutive months without a CLABSI in 2011, and teams from Cohort 2 in the Greater Kansas City area were recognized for completing the two year project.   Congratulations to all the Missouri teams!
