Catheter Reduction QIA 2017

Keeping the Score




This program aims to achieve a Network reduction in the rate of long-term catheter use among prevalent patients by at least 2 percent in dialysis facilities with a >10% rate of long- term catheter use at baseline. Network 3 will assist the facilities in developing and sustaining a process for placement and monitoring of the vascular access. To sustain the outcomes of this project the Network has gathered resources and developed tools that address patient and staff education and support the facility’s catheter reduction activities.
