Great Ideas Exchanged at CUSP/Stop CAUTI Learning Session!

September 11, 2012    |   By: Calevir

MOCPS welcomed representatives from 10 of our CUSP/Stop CAUTI Cohort 2 teams to Columbia on September 5th, 2012, for the final Learning Session of this collaborative. We were very fortunate to have Dr. Tammy Lundstrom, CMO for Premier Health Partners in Dayton, Ohio, speak on the challenges and importance of sustainability after collaborative projects come to an end. She shared some great tips on communicating with physicians about catheter use and how to bring utilization numbers down. Teams were recognized for 100% data reporting and for reductions in their CAUTI rates.
