Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI)

Education

Educator Presentations

The CEC has produced the following presentations to support clinical educators in implementing the project resources. Clinical educators can use these materials for self-learning or for inclusion in staff education and training. These presentations can be adapted locally.

Support Tool Guides

In addition, the following quick guides have been produced for clinicians. Each guide provides the clinician with background information and instructions on how to use the relevant decision support tool.

Online Training

The ‘Inserting an Indwelling Urinary Catheter in an Adult’ eLearning module is now available on HETI Online. This module should be used to supplement practical training on catheter insertion.

Competency Assessment Tool

A competency assessment tool for catheter insertion has been developed to support clinical educators in assessing the competency of staff who are responsible for inserting urinary catheters. This tool includes assessment of the use of aseptic technique.
